Join Troop 116!
For boys aged 11 years old or have completed 5th grade
Troop 116 meets once a week, every Monday at 7PM at Sharon Baptist Church (second floor of the childcare building). We are a member of the Mecklenburg County Council within the Boys Scouts of America (BSA) organization. Our Troop was organized in April 1962, and ever since, we have focused on creating a combination of action-packed adventure trips, instructive weekly programs, and the opportunity to engage our boys in leadership and community service. The mission of BSA helps to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Law and Scout Oath.
Joining Troop 116 is easy! Just contact our Scoutmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org and attend a weekly meeting. We promise to be a great place to make new friends, participate in monthly outdoor adventures (backpacking, skiing, canoeing, sailing, cycling and more), learn new skills (first aid, camping, fire safety), acquire leadership skills (team-building and public speaking) and serve your community (annual food drives for Loaves & Fishes, semi-annual cleanup projects for Adopt-a-Stream). Youth who progress in time and rank in our Troop are able to earn the coveted Eagle Award, a lifetime achievement unlike any other.
