“It is up to the Patrol Leader to take hold of and develop the qualities of each boy in his patrol. It sounds like a big order, but in practice, it works.”

Lord Baden-Powell

“An invaluable step in character training is to put responsibility on the individual.”

Lord Baden-Powell

patrol method4
Patrol Method

In 1914, Baden Powell said

To get First Class results from this system:

  • You have to give the leader a real free-handed responsibility.
  • If you give only partial responsibility, you will get only partial results.

Remember this when you delegate responsibilities to members of your patrol or troop. Allow them to fail. Give them your support and guidance.

patrol method5
Patrol Method

Each patrol is made up of:

  • Patrol Leader
  • Assistant Patrol Leader
  • Patrol Quartermaster
  • Patrol Scribe
  • Patrol Grubmaster
  • Patrol Cheermaster

It is important for EVERY scout in the troop to be part of a patrol and to have a designated position of leadership.
