Is Troop 72 Right For You?

Troop 72 is a boy-lead, patrol based, light weight backpacking troop.  We meet almost every Monday of the year at Christ Episcopal Church at 7305 Afton Road, Woodbury, MN.  Our Scoutmaster of 30 plus years brings a vast amount of experience to the Troop.  Our large corp of assistant scoutmasters and committee members demonstrates the dedication from parents and other scouters to making this Troop successful for the scouts.  


We camp in tents, snow shelters and under the stars 11 months of the year.  We offer a summer camp program at Tomahawk Scout Reservation that is second to none.  There is at least 2 high adventure trips planned each year.  Our signature Thanksgiving Feast is a highlight of the year as we cook an entire Thanksgiving meal from scratch, including turkeys and hams in ground ovens.  If you are not excited about the outdoors and all the adventures that come with it, you might consider another troop. 


 For times when we are not camping or planning for camping, the scouts are involved in our well established merit badge programming where we offer 3 merit badge sessions through the calendar year for scouts who desire to advance in rank and ultimately achieve the Eagle badge.   



  We teach discipline and self respect.  This is an important part of the program because boys of scout age need structure and discipline to keep them focused on achievement.  The boys learn to listen to the leaders at the troop meetings, wear the complete and proper scout uniform, respect the outdoors (leave no trace) and perform community service when the opportunity arises. 

 We promote the Scout Oath and the 12 points of the Scout Law in our all our activites while maintaining a fun and safe environment.  Our goals are to transform boys into young men that will eventually be leaders of great character in our communities when they become adults.  What more could you want for your boy!
