History

The progressive movement in the United States was at its height during the early twentieth century. With the migration of families from rural to urban centers, there were concerns among some people that young men were no longer learning patriotism and individualism. The YMCA was an early promoter of social welfare and other reforms involving young men. Robert Baden-Powell started Scouting in 1907 in Great Britain and the movement began to grow overseas. In 1909, Chicago publisher W. D. Boyce was visiting London, England where he learned of the Scouting movement. Soon after his return to the US, Boyce incorporated the Boy Scouts of America on February 8, 1910.

In 1957 Cub Scout Troop 16 was formed at Ramah with Ms. Pat McCord and Ms. Hilda Mayes as den mothers. Den 1 had 6 boys and Den 2 had 7 boys. The Boy Scouts were revived in 1983. Because it was the year of the bicentennial at Ramah, they decided to call themselves Troop 200.

Since then, 39 young men have received the Eagle Award. The Boy Scout program continues to be one of Ramah’s significant programs that has a positive influence on young men in the community.
