Important Messages from other leaders

From Mr. McDonald

First Message:  This years troop T shirts were handed out last night to all scouts who attended.  We still have quite a few shirts that need to be handed out.   If you were not at the meeting last night and still need to pickup your shirts, please make sure you attend the troop meeting on Tuesday.  As in previous summer camps, we will be wearing a different T shirt each day of the week, so you will need all five shirts.

Second Message:  Jordan Armstrong, Sam Dykstra, and Mason Taylor.  You three have been selected to lead our troop at summer camp this year.  It is absolutely necessary that you be at the Tuesday troop meeting so we can discuss your roles during summer camp as well as our expectations.  If you cannot be there for any reason, you must let me know.  Hopefully, Reed Nichter and Mr. Bennett have already discussed this with you.

About Us

Our members

We have about 40-50 Scouts of all ranks, as well as an equal number of adult leaders and participants. The smaller size of our troop allows for individual attention to each boy's advancement.

How we got started

We became a Troop in 2003, chartered through Saint Martha Catholic Church in Kingwood, Texas. Our name was Troop 727 in Kingwood. We are the best Troop for Boy Scouts in Kingwood and Boy Scouts in Houston!

What we do

We go on monthly campouts, as well as an annual summer camp. There are also many activities and fundraisers occurring throughout the year. We are the troop that puts out the flags in your neighborhood on patriotic holidays! Older Scouts attend high adventure camps each summer. We meet every Tuesday night at 7:30 in the Youth Center at Saint Martha Catholic School.
