The patrol is a group of Scouts who belong to a troop and who are probably similar in age, development, and interests. The patrol method allows Scouts to interact in a small group outside the larger troop context, working together as a team and sharing the responsibility of making their patrol a success.

At right, The Bear Patrol makes some lunch at Camp Louis Ernst. The boys plan, purchase and prepare their meals as a patrol.
