"Scouting for Boys"The Scouting movement was founded by Robert S.S. Baden-Powell in England in 1908.  "Scouting for Boys", the first book on the Scout Movement was published in 1908.

In 1909, Chicago publisher William D. Boyce lost his way in a dense London fog. A boy came to his aid and, after guiding the man, refused a tip, explaining that as a Scout he would not take a tip for doing a troop 7 logoGood Turn. This gesture by an unknown Scout inspired a meeting with Robert Baden-Powell.  As a result, William Boyce incorporated the Boy Scouts of America on February 8, 1910, which was chartered by the United States Congress in 1916. 

The Boy Scouts of America was incorporated to provide a program for community organizations that offers effective character building, citizenship and personal fitness training for youth. Specifically, the BSA endeavors to develop American citizens who are physically, mentally, and morally fit; have a high degree of self-reliance as evidenced in such qualities as initiative, courage, and resourcefulness: have personal values based on religious concepts; have the desire and skills to help others; understand the principle of the American social, economic, and governmental systems; are knowledgeable about and take pride in their American heritage and understand our nation's role in the world; have a keen respect for the basic rights of all people; are prepared to participate in and give leadership to American society.

The Scouting program has three specific objectives, commonly referred to as the "Aims of Scouting.'' They are character development, citizenship training and personal fitness.  

Bill Norton, Troop 7 ScoutmasterBill Norton, is the Troop 7 Scoutmaster starting in 2014.  Born in Fort Worth and raised in North Richland Hills, he has a degree in Applied Science and his career is in Software and Computers. When not working, Bill is an active member in his church, a soccer coach, referee and board member.  Bill resides with his wife Tina and son Will in Grapevine.    When son Will was as in first grade,  Will started as a Tiger Cub; Bill has been involved in Scouting ever since.

Scoutmaster Bill Norton says: 

"I truly believe in Scouting.  I have watched as young Scouts have grown into fine young men.  Scouts learn Leadership by having fun camping, hiking, interacting with peers and adults, all while learning life skills.  The Leadership Training in Scouts is unparalleled and I am excited to be an active part of it." 


From Lord Baden Powell's last message to Scouts:

"But the real way to happiness is by giving out happiness to other people.  Try and leave this world a little better than you found it and when your turn comes to die, you can die happy in feeling that at any rate you have not wasted your time but have done your best.  'Be Prepared' in this way , to live happy and to die happy - stick to your Scout Promise always - even after you have ceased to be a boy - and God help you to do it."
