Troop activities provide opportunities for boys to live the ideals of Scouting, to develop proficiency in outdoor and practical life skills, to explore career possibilities and to gain leadership experience.
Troop 33’s program is designed for boys aged 11 through 17 and recognizes the value of their various academic and personal commitments. However, Scouts who have completed 5th grade or received Arrow of Light at age 10 may be considered to join our Troop at age 10. Each Scout determines his own pace for rank advancement and designs his own agenda of participation in Troop activities. Learning to work cooperatively in mixed-age patrols of boys and as a member of the Troop is at the heart of our Scouting Program at Troop 33.
