About Scouts

About the Film

Scouts is based on Troop 242, which is a historic Boy Scout group in Houston, Texas. Through the years the African-American troop has garnered the most black Eagle Scouts in the Southwest. However, times are different... Video-Gamers, iPods and Hip Hop music all seem to make scouting passé. The Troops suspects Chester's involvement in their misfortune. Chester's poor performance during camporee competitions also adds tension. How will he perform when he really has to be a scout to survive and save his fellow scouts? Will his actions be enough to revive Troop 242? Scouts is a PG-13 coming of age film like The BdNews Bears, Roll Bounce, Sandlot, and Stand By Me.
