About Us

Boy Scout Troop 261 was established in 1938. It is currently chartered by the Northfield Presbyterian Church in Sagamore Hills, Ohio. We primarily serve boys in the Nordonia Hills school district. We meet every Monday from 7:00 until 8:30 pm in the Fellowship Hall located in the basement of the church. Our parent meetings are on the fourth Monday of the month during our regular scout meeting. We camp every month of the year except for August and December. In December, we typically have an outing that does not involve camping. We also try to have one "high adventure" camp every summer. In the past few years we have gone to Florida Sea Base, Northern Tier Canoe Base in Canada and Philmont Scout Range in New Mexico.

Our current Scoutmaster is Bill Skerl who was Scoutmaster from 2005 through 2012 and has stepped back into this role since May 2015. Our current Committee Chair is Brett White who has served since the start of 2016. If you would like further information about joining our troop, please contact Bill or Brett. Their contact information is in the Directory section of the website.
