Come one, come all... it's time for our Annual Geronimo Court of Honor!  Even if your Scout did not attend summer camp this year, this is one of the highlights of the year.  We recognize the boys for their accomplishments, give out tons of awards, and the boys perform skits and songs from camp.  We also present the annual Geronimo DVD at this Court of Honor.  Bring the whole family - all are welcome!

When: July 28th (6:30-8:30 pm)
Where: 8055 N 39th Ave (Phoenix Friends Church - big church building)

Troop 747 - New Trailer

posted Jul 11, 2015, 10:10 PM by Kate Studey

Thanks to everyone who helped with donations for our Troop trailer.  We were able to get the new trailer just in time to take the boys up to Camp Geronimo for summer camp this year.  All of your support is greatly appreciated!

Trailer Donation

posted Feb 17, 2015, 3:37 PM by Kate Studey   [ updated Feb 17, 2015, 3:37 PM ]

Our troop trailer was involved in an accident over the summer and the costs to repair it are more than the trailer is worth.

We are raising money to replace our 20+ year old trailer with a newer, lighter trailer to haul our troop's gear to our various campouts throughout the year, to upgrade some of the older gear and to cover the costs to equip and operate the trailer.

To make a donation, visit our GoFundMe site here.
