The Boy Scouts of America prohibits the use of alcoholic beverages and controlled substances at encampments or activities on property owned and/or operated by the Boy Scouts of America, or at any activity involving participation of youth members.

Adult leaders should support the attitude that young adults are better off without tobacco and may not allow the use of tobacco products at any BSA activity involving youth participants.

All Scouting functions, meetings, and activities should be conducted on a smoke-free basis, with smoking areas located away from all participants.

Troop 1 fully indorses the National BSA Policy on Drug, Alcohol, and Tobacco Use and Abuse. 

The Troop Leadership Committee expects any adults participating in Troop 1 outings to comply with this policy. If we fail to comply, we put our relationship with The Church of the Advent and the Palmetto Council at risk. We also put in jeopardy our Troop 1 charter. Please realize the importance of compliance with this policy.
