Challenger Troops
Troop 622 in Willmar, MN is a Challenger troop specially chartered for mentally disabled men. A story about them can be read here.

Scouts in Troop 622 have no 18 year old membership limit and they progress through the scout ranks at their pace. They persevere and meet requirements and celebrate their accomplishments.

There are many units that include scouts with various disabilities while other scout families prefer to have a unit dedicated to special needs scouts. In the Northern Star Council, there is a Challenger District to serve special needs scouts with special programs.

Our troop has hosted scouts from a challenger troop on occasional campouts and all scouts learned a lot. Your troop could check with your district or council to find out how you can help serve this special scouting population.
