Ask a boy why he joined Troop 229 and you’ll get a simple answer: “Because I want to.”
Chartered through the Parents of Princeton Scouts and serving Princeton, Texas and neighboring communities, Troop 229 promises boys Adventure, Discovery & Teamwork. Boys join Troop 229 because it’s fun. And while Troop 229 Scouts find fun and adventure in the outdoors, there is a core underlying purpose. Troop 229 is committed to the mission and vision of the Boy Scouts of America.

We are a boy-led Scouting program with an emphasis on personal growth, community service and leadership development. Scouts carry out an extremely active outdoors program that includes year-round monthly camping.
Along with character development and physical fitness, citizenship training is one of the three objectives of the Scouting program. One way Troop 229 realizes the goal of citizenship training is community service. We strongly believe that each Scout has the obligation to give something back to the community in which he lives.
