About Troop 6410

Boy Scout Troop 6410 is in the Appalachian Trail District of the Atlanta Area Council. Although we are relatively new we have a great deal of experience in both leadership and youth members. We strive to be youth led although some adult guidance is needed. Our goal is to provide a safe environment for boys to reach their full potential as leaders and community members. This goal will be accomplished through the values of scouting, empowering each boy to have a hand in their own destiny as scouts. This empowerment helps young boys develop independence, confidence and self reliance.

We meet weekly through out the year at His Hands Church in Woodstock starting August of 2012. We welcome visitors and new scouts to stop by and see what we are about. If you would like more information about us please drop by for a visit.  We meet each Tuesday from 7:00 pm  - 8:30 pm.  We can also be reached at

Thanks for stopping by our site.

What do you do?

Once upon a time, a man lived in a small town where there was no Boy Scout organization. It was a very small town. This man had a son who did well in school but was pretty shy.
One day, when the boy was just starting 6th grade, the man got a job in another town - it happened to be our town right here. So, his family moved and found a nice house in the neighborhood right next to where our troop meets.
Not long after they moved in, this boy saw our troop outside playing a game during one of our meetings. He watched from his backyard, being the shy kind of kid he was.
But, he wasn't dumb. He found out when our next meeting would be and just happened to be sitting on the curb out by the front door before our meeting.
And, there he sat, bouncing a ball and waiting. Then, a car pulled up and a scout got out, heading to our meeting.
That Scout was you. And, you'll have to finish the story in your head. Is that boy still sitting out there or not?

And, one other thing to think about - that boy may not be sitting on the curb out front. He might be sitting in the desk behind you at school or in the seat ahead of you on the bus or playing the trumpet next to you in band.

Why Join Scouts

Scout Statistics

For every 100 boys that enter scouts:

30 will drop out the first year.

Only rarely will one appear before a juvenile court judge.

12 will be from families that belong to no church, 6 of these will be brought into contact with a church and continue.

3 will become pastors.

4 scouts will reach the rank of Eagle Scout.

45 will serve in the Military.

1 person will use scout skills to save somebody else’s life.

2 will report that they used scout skills to save their own lives.

17 will later serve as adult volunteers.

8 will find their future life vocations from scouting.

5 will receive church emblems.

….Only 4 out of 100 boys in the USA will become scouts but of the

leaders of this nation in business, religion and politics, 3 out of 4 were scouts. Only 4 percent of our nation’s youth were scouts, yet 65% of all college and university graduates were scouts.

26 of 29 of the first Astronauts in NASA’s program were Eagle scouts, and 133 of the 233 Astronauts were scouts at one time.

A Nationwide survey showed that:

Of Senior Class Presidents 89% were scouts.

Of Junior Class Presidents 80% were scouts.

Student Council Presidents 85% were scouts.

School newspaper editors 88% were scouts.

Football Captains 71% were scouts.

Basketball captains 64% were scouts.

64% of Air Force Academy graduates were scouts

58% West Point Graduates were scouts.

70% of Annapolis graduates were scouts.

72% Rhodes Scholars were scouts.

85% of FBI Agents were scouts at one time.

So, 4 out of 100, (maybe more here in Nogales), make Eagle Scout.

So what about the other 94 or 92 scouts who didn’t make it to Eagle.

Is it just wasted time? The scouts have “Aims and Methods”. Things found in the Scout Oath and Law, the Patrol Method, Outdoors training, Personal growth, Leadership and So on. Advancement is certainly one of these, but only one. Just being part of the program gives the opportunity to “better and belong”.

Sure we know some famous Eagle Scouts like Sam Walton, James Lovell, Hank Aaron, Gerald Ford, John Glenn Ross Perot and Steven Speilberg.

But how about some “Not-Quite-Eagles” like John F. Kennedy, Jimmy Stewart, Harrison Ford, Merlin Olson, Richard Gere, Nolan Ryan, Jim Morrison, Joe Theisman, Bill Gates and not-quite British Scout’s Queen’s Scout – Paul McCartney. The list goes on and on.

Scouting makes a difference !
