About Us

Who We Are:

This year Troop 60 is celebrating it's 65th year.  We have  approximately 55 Scouts from throughout the area.  It is a boy led troop, weekly meetings and monthly camp out activities are planned and led by the scouts.  The adult leaders are there as guard rails.  Consistent with the values of scouting, we believe this allows the boys to grow into stronger leaders during these important years in their lives.


1 camping trip each month  (September - May).  Each provides unique experiences:

  • Canoeing
  • Cave Exploring
  • Horseback Riding
