Troop 444 Mission and History


The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.


Our mission is to help scouts learn, develop and grow in a safe, caring environment and to help families bring up moral, civic-minded leaders. We will place the well-being of the scouts ahead of any other considerations and we will respect the needs of our constituent families at all times.

The Program

The BSA Program is how we execute on the mission statement above.

Our Council and Chartered Organization

Troop 444 has been serving youth in the North Dallas/Richardson/Plano area since 1960. 

We are a member of the Circle Ten Council, which serves 24 counties in north-central Texas and Oklahoma. Nearly 59,000 young people and 12,000 adult volunteers make Circle Ten’s Scouting programs successful. Scouting units are chartered to over 800 community organizations such as schools and churches

Our chartered organization, Arapaho United Methodist Church in Richardson, provides us a supportive home base to pursue our mission – we are immensely thankful for their ongoing support!
