Welcome Troop 13 Scouts and Friends

Who We Are

Founded in 1937, we are the oldest continuously chartered troop in Gulf Stream 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 the school year.  On campouts, we practice scout skills, like hiking, swimming, backpacking, canoeing, and sometimes snow skiing, white water rafting, river tubing, and scuba diving (for those who are certified).  During the summer months, 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!

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

 

New members are always welcome!

Dear Scouts and Adults,  What better way to start out our year than with a day of service to our home camp- Tanah Keeta?  For those that still need conservation hours for your 50 milers, this is your chance.  Bring some grubby clothes and a water bottle.  The troop will provide pizza for lunch.  Please RSVP on the troop calendar.

Dear Scouts,

Scout History from Historian

The relationship between NASA and BSA has gone on for years. Of the former and current astronauts, ⅔ of them have been involved in scouting. 11 of the 12 men to walk on the moon were Scouts. And of the 24 men to travel to the moon 20 were scouts. The skills that BSA teaches can take you far places. Have a fun summer.     ~Ethan C

Scout History from our Troop Historian

Posted on Jun 14 2022 - 12:06pm

The history between Boy Scouts and FBI works back to 1937. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover hosted scouts to visit the FBI headquarters. He also helped oversee the drafting of the fingerprinting merit badge pamphlet. Edgar Hoover got scouts to collect fingerprints on hard drives that would be sent to the FBI’s Civil Identification Section. This is separate from its criminal database but still helped gather the IDs of many Americans.
