General Information

Boy Scout Troop 613 is chartered by Woodhaven Baptist Church in Apex, NC. Because of our strong partnership with our Chartering Organization, our troop is distinctly Christian. All boys are welcome. However, we do teach the Bible as the Word of God, and use the Bible as the foundation for character development.

Our troop number comes from Ephesians 6:13:

    "Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done         everything, to stand firm."

Troop 613 is a boy-led troop that utilizes the Aims and Methods of Scouting to develop youth leaders. We meet on Monday nights from 7pm to 8:30pm at Woodhaven Baptist Church located at 4000 Kildaire Farm Rd in Apex, NC.

Troop 613 enthusiastically welcomes 10-18 year old boys who enjoy being in the outdoors, challenging themselves with new skills and activities, and want to learn how to be a leader. We also camp monthly.  If you are not sure if Scouting is for you, come and visit to find out for yourself.

SPL Note:


Scoutmaster Note:

A couple of months ago, it was my privilege to take over as Troop 613's Scoutmaster.  Having been an Assistant Scoutmaster for a couple of years now, and remembering my experience as a Christian Eagle Scout, my goal is to continue the tradition of leading a true Boy Lead Troop.  I will also put my Woodbadge training to good use as I work on my goals for my ticket with the Troop.  In addition to my experience with the Troop, I was a Cubmaster in my previous life for 5 years.

 
No Troop is perfect, but we strive to have a quality program that continues to have the Scouts and Scouters grow in both leadership and scouting skills, all the while honoring God in the process.

 
Admittedly, I have a lot to learn (and will continue to learn as I move forward), but I have a great Committee Chair (our previous Scoutmaster, Tim Taylor) and an excellent group of Assistant Scoutmasters to work with and learn from.

 
As Scouting’s founder, Lord Baden Powell said, “Scouting is a game for boys under the leadership of boys under the direction of a man”.
