Are you staying in town for Memorial Day weekend? The annual Troop 49 Memorial Day Ceremony will be Sunday May 29th @ 3:00pm Back Creek Church Veterans Memorial. All available Scouts and leaders need to be at Back Creek Church by 1:00pm to practice the Ceremony. The church's cemetery is the final resting place of Soldiers from every major War or Conflict from the revolutionary times to the Persian Gulf War. The Scouts will have the opportunity to honor those soldiers by placing a flag on their grave. If you are in town, please allow your Scout/s to honor these veterans.
 
Here are some details for Sunday, May 29th
  • Arrive at the Church at 1:00pm to allow scouts to practice the ceremony. We will meet at the back of the Church near graveyard.
  • Wear Class A uniforms with the Class B t-shirt underneath.
  • Ceremony begins at 3pm.
 

Parents - Please remember that Parts A, B, & C of the Medical Form, an updated Shot Record, and a copy of your Insurance card must be on file with the Troop before Summer Camp. Thank you.

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.
