The boys and leaders of Troop 6 welcome you!

 

Troop 6 welcomes all boys ages 11 to 18.

We have a vigorous outdoor and advancement program including year-round monthly overnight outings.  All activities are planned BY the boys FOR the boys with minimal adult intervention.  In this way, the boys of Troop 6 grow into independent, confident, responsible young men.  Our philosophy in all that we do is "Prepared for Life".

Interested in learning more?  Join us for one of our weekly Tuesday night Troop meetings in the St Andrews UMC gym or

Why boys need summer resident camp?

Posted on Jan 27 2016 - 10:50pm

The Boy Scout program is based on many outdoor skills, and by learning and using these skills, Boy Scouts prepare for responsible adult lives. Troop meetings, hikes, and overnight campouts give boys the opportunity for advancement, leadership experience, and the ability to live with others—under the wise counsel of a Scoutmaster who sets an example for the boys he leads. Resident camp—usually six or seven days in length—is the climax of the troop's year-round program. In the setting of this Boy Scout training center, boys live Scouting's ideals, participate as members of a patrol, make strides in their personal growth, and have opportunities for advancement and other meaningful programs. With a trained staff, resident camp can help the troop, the patrol, and the individual Boy Scout. The resident camp experience strengthens the troop by providing a goal toward which the troop can prepare throughout the year. Register for summer camp on theTroop website calendar for June.
