Are you new to Scouting and curious about what Scouting is all about?

Or a graduating Cub Scout who is searching for a Troop to continue the Scouting experience?

Are you already involved in Scouting and looking for an active Troop with an "old school" focus on mastery of outdoor skills?  

Then we invite you to visit us at a Tuesday meeting or use the "Contact Us" link in the bar at left.  

We are excited to speak with you and our Scouts are always welcoming visitors and new Scouts!


Our Adult Leadership Team is excited and committed to our Scouting program, and we understand that while the program is Scout Led it is still important to be Adult Mentored.  As Adult Leaders, we strive every day to Do Our Best to be positive models in mentorship, leadership, conduct, Scouting skills and knowledge, and emotional and spiritual nourishment that our young people need to grow into strong citizens and leaders. 

We challenge our Scouts in many ways with the goal of building life resilience and strength of character.
