Welcome Troop 13 Scouts and Friends

Who We Are

Founded in 1937, we are the oldest continuously chartered troop in Gulfstream Council.  We are a scout led troop, and we believe that scouts learn best by doing, even if they make mistakes.  We are also a fully integrated, co-ed troop, welcoming both male and female scouts. 

What We Do

We are an active troop.  At meetings, we play games and learn scout skills.  We also plan for our next outings.  We camp at least once a month during every month during the school year.  On these camp outs, we practice scout skills, like hiking, swimming, backpacking, and canoeing, and sometimes snow skiing, white water rafting, river tubing, and scuba diving (for those who are certified).  During the summers, we go to summer camps, both locally and out of state, usually in the mountains.  Hello cooler weather!  

We believe in service – we seek to give back to our charter organization, Memorial Presbyterian Church,  and our community.   

Come join us!

Normally, we meet every Thursday night at 7pm at Memorial Presbyterian Church on the campus of Palm Beach Atlantic University. 

 

We have been doing online meetings during Covid lockdown.

New members are always welcome!

Join us at TK for the fifth annual Be a Scout Day at the Tanah Keeta Scout Reservation.  Scouts will earn service hours for their participation.  So far, we have a great number of scouts attending, but we could always use more.   Please wear a Class A with a Troop 13 Class B underneath.  Also, bring your water bottle and a little cash for the food trucks and the camp store.

Troop 13 Cycling Program

Posted on Aug 22 2021 - 6:06am

This fall, the Troop 13 Cycling Program will be helping scouts improve their cycling skills and stamina and prepare for a 50 miler trip over Thanksgiving Break.  Scouts will have the opportunity to raise funds to help fight children's cancers while earning their cycling mb, personal fitness mb, 50 miler award, and National Outdoor Award for Riding.  For more information, check out the cycling program handbook and information in the cycling file in the files section of the Troop Website.  This program is open to scouts and adults of all ages and fitness level. Our first meeting of the program will be this Sunday at 8am at Dreher Park for the Bike Maintenance and Safety Clinic and Ride.  If you miss this clinic, there will be a makeup during the Okeeheelee Campout.  Still have questions after reading the cycling handbook? Contact Mrs. Bell.

2021-2022 Camping Schedule

If you missed last week's meeting, you missed out on the SPLs' most amazing camping preview.   You can still learn all about the upcoming camps by clicking on the files section of the website and then on camping information.  There you will find the 2021-2022 color camping brochure.  All camping for the upcoming year is now on the troop's calendar and all registrations are active.  Registration closes approximately 2-3 weeks before the campout, so make sure your register early.If you still have questions after looking at the camping brochure, contact Mrs. Bell.
