SUPPORT TROOP 761
If you support scouting and have a desire to help boys grow into young leaders please consider volunteering for Troop 761. If you're a member of the troop, consider volunteering for one of the open adult Committee or ASM positions.
Donate to the Troop Equipment Fund!
We need to start replacing some of the equipment that has served us well. Tents, stoves, a pesky gas regulator, etc. We also want to improve our ability to go on remote camping trips. Please help us to improve your troop by donating to our equipment fund.
Popcorn sales help each scout and they help the troop. Be sure to buy some popcorn either on-line or in person from a Troop761 Scout
Camping is the joyous part of a Scout's life. Living out in God's open air, among the hills and the trees, and the birds and the beasts, and the sea and the rivers -- that is, living with nature, having your own little canvas home, doing your own cooking and exploration -- all this brings health and happiness such as you can never get among the bricks and smoke of your own.
- Robert Baden-Powell, Scouting for Boys (1908)
