Where does the Boy Scout badge get it's shape?                                                                   The fleur de lis shape of the scout badge is patterned after a compass rose --- the decorative north-pointing arrow on early maps.  It is meant to remind scouts to always keep their bearings and follow a straight path.

Hi!  My name is Preston Hagerman and I am the Senior Patrol Leader of Troop 868.  I earned the Arrow of Light award in Cub Scouts and am currently a Life Scout working toward earning my Eagle badge.  I will be a Sophomore at North Bullitt High School this fall.  I have earned 52 merit badges since becoming a Boy Scout about four years ago.  In our troop, we have many opportunities to earn merit badges.

Our troop meets every Tuesday night at 7:00 PM at the Shepherdsville Community Center.  We are very active with camping, fundraising, and many community service events.

Please come and enjoy the fun of Boy Scouting with us.  New members are always welcome.

Hello!  I'm Brixton Jacobs.  I'm 14 years old and I'm the Scribe for Troop 868.  I've been in Boy Scouting for 3 years.  In that time, I've already advanced to the rank of Life Scout and have had many camping experiences because our troop goes to a different camp every month.  We also go on a two-week long summer camp trip every year.  We earn merit badges at camp but the best part of the long trip is that we really get to know each other, get to be good friends, and bond together as a troop.
Hello!  My name is Andrew Clinton.  I am an 8th grader at Bullitt Lick Middle School.  Iím currently 13 and a Star scout.  Iím the Patrol Leader for the Beaver Patrol and Den Chief for the second-year Webelos Den in Pack 868.  This picture was taken when our troop went backpacking in the Deam Wilderness Area of the Hoosier National Forest last fall.  Troop 868 does some kind of outing every month -- a campout, hike, or day trip.  I encourage other boys to join our troop and do all the fun stuff we do.  On annual summer camp trips involve two full weeks of exploring and having fun.  We also do a lot of advancement and merit badge work.  Our troop hosts a huge Merit Badge University (MBU) program every February.  Our weekly meetings run from 7-9 PM on Tuesday nights at the Community Center in Shepherdsville.  We'd love to see you there.
