A Scout Troop is the standard group for Scouts and is composed of multiple patrols. The troop's adults are divided into two branches: Program, the Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters, and Support, the Troop Committee Chairman and the Troop Committee. Other adult positions usually include a Treasurer and Secretary.
Troops are usually expected to meet weekly, and go on outings monthly. They also hold Courts of Honor at least once a year; usually quarterly.
The troop is a registered "unit" with its local council. Other basic units are:
- Pack - Cub Scouting
- Team - Varsity Scouting
- Crew - Venturing
- Ship - Sea Scouting
- Post - Explorers
- Group - Learning for Life
