In a patrol, everyone works together to accomplish common needs. There is a patrol leader who leads the group and his assistant who helps him and fills in the place for him when he's not there. There are also various other leadership positions in a patrol such as the patrol quartermaster, grubmaster, and cook. These positions may stay the same or may change from campout to campout. Patrols do everything together: plan menus and gear lists, cook, eat , sleep, and the least favorite, kp (clean up). Currently in our troop we have four patrols, the foxes, scorpions, dragons, and the blue thunder beavers of rock.
Patrol Leaders Council
The patrol leader of each patrol comes to a meeting called the PLC to represent his patrol and their interests.
