A Scout Troop is the standard group for Scouts and is composed of multiple patrols, and are supported by an adult troop committee.
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's adult Scouters 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.
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
