Boy Scouts of America Troop 4010 is part of the Chief Old Ox District of the Lincoln Heritage Council. Duty to God, Country, and Self are more than mere words, they are a way of life at 4010.
Troop 4010 is dedicated to the ideals of the Boy Scouting movement in the United States.
This is a boy-led troop. The boys design and run the events of the troop. We feel the boys have a great program that lives up to the ideals of scouting. The adult leaders are here to guide young boys into responsible young men.
Boy scout Troop 4010 was originally chartered to Morton Memorial Church in 1929. The troop moved to St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in 2009. Although we are chartered by a religious institution, the troop itself is non-sectarian and membership is open to young men ages 11 to 17 (inclusive), of any faith, race or national origin who follow the ideas of the Scout Oath and Law.
Troop 4010 meets on Monday nights from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. in the Social Hall at St.Anthony Catholic Church at 316 N. Sherwood Ave., Clarksville, IN (812) 282-2290.
The Social Hall generally is opened by 6:30 p.m. Scouts are welcome to come early to hold patrol meetings, meet with Merit Badge Counselors and take part in some pre-meeting activities. Boy leaders and patrols responsible for skill lessons are encouraged to be at the meetings by 6:45 pm to prepare forthe night's meeting. When at troop meetings Boy Scout Class A uniform is expected to be worn unless otherwise directed by the Senior Patrol Leader. Please check the troop calendar for specific dates.
