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
