Boy Scouts

Boy Scout Troop 716 invites you to Be A Scout!

“EAGLE UP!” is our troop slogan; we are committed to guiding our scouts on their path to Eagle. We are a newly formed troop (May 2013) and we have much to offer. Please come for a visit and see what opportunities there are in scouting.


If there’s one thing Scouts know it’s that the best part of earning a badge is the experience. And with badges raging from backpacking to robotics, there are tons of cool experiences to be had. So if your son is looking for real adventure, get him involved with Boy Scouts of America. You’ll see firsthand how once-in-a-lifetime opportunities can lead to a lifetime of success.
