The Troop 1600 Code of Conduct
  • The unit’s adult leaders (Scoutmaster and assistants) are responsible for the supervision of its membership in respect to maintaining discipline, security, and the Troop Code of Conduct.
  • Each Scout will show respect to Adult Leaders, other Scouts, parents, and guests. The Scout Oath and Law will be my guide throughout all scout related activities and meetings.
  • I will set a good example by keeping myself neatly dressed and presentable (based on the uniform requirements set forth for each activity)
  • I will be responsible for my tent and for keeping personal gear labeled, clean and neat. I will do my best to adhere to the principles of “Leave no Trace” in all Troop activities.
  • I understand that the purchase, possession, or consumption of alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs by any Troop member is prohibited.

The Troop 1600 Code of Conduct
  • Serious and/or repetitive behavioral violations by youth, including bullying, cheating, stealing, dishonesty, abusive language, swearing, fighting, and cursing, may result in expulsion from the Troop or serious disciplinary actions and loss of privileges.
  • I understand that possession or firearms or fireworks is prohibited. Scouts who have earned the Totin Chip card are allowed to carry a folding pocket knife as long as they follow the proper safety procedures.
  • I will demonstrate respect for my Troops and other Scouts property and will be responsible for loss, breakage, or vandalism of property as a result of my actions.
  • Neither the unit leaders nor the Boy Scouts will be responsible for loss, breakage, or theft of personal items. I will label personal items and leave items of value at home. Theft will be grounds for expulsion.
  • I will obey safety rules and instructions of all supervisors and activity staff.

The Troop 1600 Code of Conduct
  • Hazing and/or physical punishment has no place in Scouting. Leaders and older youth must prevent any youth from being “initiated” into the troop with hazing.
  • I understand and will abide by the Troop 1600 Electronic Device Policy.
  • Serious violation of this code may result in expulsion from the Troop. All decisions will be final.
