We Welcome You To Troop 650!

Welcome to Troop 650! We at Troop 650 have many exciting things for the boys to participate in, such as campouts, hiking trips, rifle shooting, and other exciting scouting activities. Community service projects are also available to the scout to help him go up in rank (most importantly, the rank of Eagle Scout). Popcorn sales and BBQ sales will be held to assist boys with their dues as well as their trip to Summer Camp. 

We also are proud to announce that Troop 650 will have a new scoutmaster. Our scoutmaster will be Rob Murphy, who will officially be taking over at the end of February. Let's thank Bill McCowan for being a gracious person for stepping up to the position and help take care of the troop. 

Also, please note that we have changed the start time of our meetings. As of January 6, 2014, we'll be meeting at the church at 7:00pm. The meeting time of 7:00pm will remain so from this point on.

Please be aware that access to this site is limited to Troop 650 members only. To get access, you must be fully registered with the Troop. ~Thanks

Our troop is in need of merit badge counselors. The merit badge counselor is a key player in the Boy Scout advancement program. If you are an adult leader, or a parent of a scout in our troop, we could use your help. Whatever your area of expertise or interest—whether it is a special craft or hobby (basketry, leatherwork, coin collecting), a profession (veterinary medicine, aviation, engineering), or perhaps a life skill (cooking, personal management, communications)—as a merit badge counselor, you can play a vital role in stirring a young man's curiosity about that particular topic. All of you are an expert in at least one thing, and I'm sure many of you have hobbies you excel in. Please look at signing up as a merit badge counselor. There is no fee for this. By serving as a merit badge counselor, you offer your time, knowledge, and other resources so that Scouts can explore a topic of interest.

Campout Reservation

Posted by Terri Dollinger on Sep 10 2012 - 11:18pm


If you are going to any campout throughout the scouting year, please be sure you sign up on the website by clicking on any activity in the "Event Registration" box on the main page. I am always logging on to the website and see that hardly anybody uses this handy feature. This is so that the troop leaders can easily know who is and who isn't going on a campout. Don't forget, if you already registered for a campout and cannot attend it, you can always go back into the event and drop your name. Thanks for your cooperation!
