Why You Should Join Our Troop

Boy Scouting is a program that teaches today's youth leadership, independence, and outdoor skills that will benefit them throughout life. Experienced Scouts teach younger Scouts the skills and knowledge they have learned.

Troop 270 is a traditional Boy Scout Troop that incorporates Scouting’s Ideals into an action packed adventure.   

Membership is open to boys who are 11, but not yet 18 years old OR have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10 OR have earned the Cub Scout Arrow of Light Award and are at least 10 years old. Membership is open to all   religious faiths. Parents, prospective Boy Scouts, and family members are welcome to visit any meeting. Full uniform is not required immediately, but is encouraged. Minimum uniform is the official uniform shirt with correct patches, which should be obtained within one month of joining.

We welcome the applications of adults who wish to volunteer with the troop. Adult volunteers serve the troop in a variety  of jobs—everything from Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters to Troop Committee Members, Merit Badge Counselors, and Chartered Organization Representatives. Applicants do not need previous Scouting experience, just a willingness to help, and to follow the principles of Scouting.  A parent or guardian must be present at joining to complete the registration.
