What is Troop 13? 
Troop 13 is an exciting boy-led troop that provides its members with weekly meetings, monthly camping trips, as well as opportunities for service and advancement. We meet weekly on Monday nights at the Presbyterian Church from 7:15-8:30 PM all year long.

In the past we have helped with many eagles projects, marched in parades, put flags on veterans' graves, and run campouts for cub scouts. Troop members have participated in Order of the Arrow activities, trips to the high adventure bases at Philmont Scout Ranch, Northern Tier, and the Florida Sea Base, and both national and international jamborees.

This site will keep you updated with everything that scouting has to offer in the area.
