Welcome to Troop 36!


Our goal is first to have fun! While having fun, you will learn skills that will help you become better equipped for outdoor adventure. You will learn to work together with your patrol members and troop, and also to develop lifelong friendships. You will learn leadership skills that will help you become a leader in your family, community, and nation. You will develop values that will help guide you through the rest of your life. You will also develop an understanding of your duties to your family, religious beliefs, and your responsibilities to the environment.

For more information on Troop 36 and what we offer, please contact Scoutmaster Ken Wendt.
