October 25th Troop and Crew 505 Open House

Troop 505open house

Troop 505 meets Wednesday nights from 7-8:30pm at the American Legion Chapel Hill Post 6, 1714 Legion Rd. Chapel Hill, NC, 27517. Young men between the ages of 10-17 are encouraged to attend anytime. Boy Scouts focuses on developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness. Troop 505 has a strong emphasis on outdoors and camps every month.

Crew 505 also meets Wednesday nights and focuses on high adventure for young men and women ages 14-20. Venturing’s purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults. Venturing is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth, adult leaders, and organizations in their communities. Local community organizations establish a Venturing crew by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. The result is a program of exciting and meaningful activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, develop leadership skills, and become good citizens.

October 18th Court of Honor

October 18th we will have our Fall Court of Honor. Parents, relatives, and friends are welcome to attend as we award our hardworking Scouts with rank advancements and merit badges earned. Unless there is rain we will hold the ceremony outside at the fire pit.
