Trail Life has made it easy for scouts to transfer from BSA into the program.  In this way, the scout does not feel that he is losing any ground, and can still apply his skills and knowledge from his BSA years to his remaining achievement path in the Trail Life program.  Troop 147 believes in fostering a dialog with members coming from local Boy Scout Troops.  Also, Troop 147 offers the full range of the Trail Life USA program, from ages 5 through 24, plus adult leadership.
