Troop Meetings

Troop 49 meets on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. during the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school year. During the summer months, however, the scouting action continues until 9:00.

To make it to the home of Troop 49, just follow these easy directions:

  • Head away from uptown Charlotte and toward Harrisburg on Highway 49.
  • Pass the Town Center Plaza on your right, UNC-Charlotte campus on your left, and Wendy's on your left.
  • Accross from Wendy's, turn right on Back Creek Church Road at the next stoplight. You'll cross a set of railroad tracks.
  • See that old church on the left? That's where we meet. Park your car and walk down the side of the church facing Back Creek Church Road until you see a door with a fleur-de-lis on it.
  • Pass through the door and descend the stairs to your right.
