Boy Scouts. Be Prepared—for anything.
Most boys avoid obstacles. Boy Scouts seek them. They live for any opportunity to display their abilities while learning new skills. Camping is fun. Surviving a downpour in the middle of the night is an adventure. Cooking over a campfire is fun. Learning which wild berries are edible is survival. Spending a weekend in the woods is fun. Breaking camp without leaving a trace is admirable. These are invaluable experiences that can be had in Scouting. These are life lessons that transform today's Boy Scouts into tomorrow's leaders.
Why You Should Join Troop 770
Through Scouting, you can go places, test yourself, and have one-of-a-kind adventures you can’t get anywhere else. Troop 770 will help you realize your potential.
Not only does the Troop have frequent camp outs and other outdoor activities, we also have a lot of young men that earn the rank of Eagle Scout. Come join your friends for fun and adventure!
The Scouts decide what we do!!
The Patrol Leaders Council meets every month to plan Troop meetings, events, and camping trips, some of which are listed below. Why don't you join us?
Troop 770 is open to all boys in the community between the ages of 11 and 18. We are chartered by River Road Presbyterian Church (across from Collegiate School) and meet in the Church's Kemp Hall a.k.a. "the basement". Boys under eleven and in at least First Grade can join River Road Presbyterian's Cub Scout Pack 770!
Most of our troop is from the Tuckahoe Middle and Freeman High School area. However, our Scouts attend a number of public and private schools.
Our goal is to have one outdoor event per month. This is often camping, but we also do day events like rock climbing at Peak Experiences, go-cart racing, and tours of places like the State Capitol or the Marine Corps Museum.
We strive to have each Scout reach First Class within one year of joining the Troop. Many Scouts continue on to reach Eagle Scout, and the Troop is eager to provide the resources to achieve this coveted rank.
