SCOUTS IN ACTION
THE TROOP
The New Horizon Scout Troop was started in the month of October 1990.Mr T.K. Narayanaswamy {LT(S)} started the troop after completing his basic training.Under his dynamic leadership,the troop has produced many Rashtrapati scouts over the years.
The scouts have always been brimming with enthusiasm and give their heart and soul into the scouting movement. Many scouts have been selected to represent Karnataka in National Jamborees held in Haridwar, Orissa,Delhi, Mangalore and represent India in International Jamborees held in Bangladesh,Thailand and London.

An enthusiastic scout troop led by an enthusiastic troop leader is what New Horizon Scout Troop is all about.
