New Troops 1197B and 1197G for Scouts with Special Needs

Scouting is for everyone no matter their ability. We have two new troops forming in our area for scouts with special needs. Troop 1197 B and 1197 G are chartered with the O.A.T.S. program in Ortonville, MI.

O.A.T.S. stands for Offering Alternative Therapy with Smiles. The program is built around riding and caring for horses as a means of overcoming physical, intellectual and learning disabilities as well as spectrum, behavioral and multiple co-existing disorders.

For more information about these new troops, please contact Doug Rohrabaugh at 586-209-7608 or or Dave Putt at
