Gotta Wanna Do It


Who We Are


We are an active and adventure-oriented Boy Scout Troop established in 1960. The Troop is sponsored by St. Mark United Methodist Church. 

The Troop consists of an average of 40 boys and four patrols. Our Troop’s focus is developing leadership skills and backpacking/outdoor activities.

What We Do


Philmont | Jun 11 – 26, 2022

Philmont is legendary, one of four BSA High Adventure Bases.  It is a large ranch in New Mexico with a range of itineraries to suit all interests.  All of the itineraries are challenging, so this venue is limited to Scouts age 14 or older (or finished 9th grade, or approved waiver based on maturity and ability).  Scouts must engage in several months of physical fitness preparations before this trip.
