Boy Scout Troop 450 - Bentonville, Arkansas

Troop News

  • May brings cool(cold) weather to Scouts during Survival Weekend. Scouts made their own shelters and ran an orienteering course while enjoying beautiful but cold May weekend.  Temperature dipped into the 40's providing for a chilly night.  Scouts found that packing extra clothes and wearing layers is a good idea.  Best dehydrated meal?  Beef Stroganoff?  Best thing about cool weather? No bugs! More photos

Troop Calendar

We follow the Bentonville School District on holidays and weather related closings. If school is closed, we will not have a meeting unless otherwise noted.


The Boy Scouts of America was founded in 1910 and has helped young boys grow into fine young men and prepared them with life skills for life’s challenges.

Boy Scouting is a year-round program for boys ages 11-17. Through the Boy Scout program, young men can achieve the core objectives of strengthening character, personal fitness and good citizenship.

See the cool stuff Boy Scouts do.  Take the link to ScoutTube and view videos produced by Boy Scouts that examine the Scout Law.

Does Scouting Work?
Scouting’s goal is to prepare young people for life, but does it work? Scouting was put to the test over the course of three years, when a research team from Tufts University worked with the Boy Scouts of America’s Cradle of Liberty Council to measure the character attributes of both Scouts and non-Scouts — all with a goal of better understanding the character development of youth as it was happening. The project, which was funded by the John Templeton Foundation and led by Dr. Richard M. Lerner, surveyed nearly 1,800 Cub Scouts and nearly 400 non-Scouts under age 12 using both interviews and survey data. In the beginning, there were no significant difference in character attributes between the two groups. By the end, however, the differences were striking in several areas. Read the whole story in the links below.
