Welcome to Troop 5!

Troop 5 is an Active Scout-led Troop.  We are a medium sized troop with over 30 active scouts who choose and plan the monthly outings and activities, teach each other outdoor skills, and grow in leadership.

We follow the core mission of the Boy Scouts of America which is, to prepare young men to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

We have strong Adult Leadership and Support. Our Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters work directly with the scouts, guiding them through the scouting program.  The Troop Committee Members ensure our scouting program succeeds.  And all parents provide valued support.

Troop 5 was established in March 2012.  We are chartered by Knights of Columbus - Corpus Christi Council 9065 and meet upstairs in the church hall of Corpus Christi Catholic Church.  Troop 5 welcomes scouts of all faiths and denominations.

The troop meets upstairs in the Church Hall by the basketball hoops.
Monday nights from 7pm to 8:30
