About Troop 61 and Contact Information

Troop 61 is located in Smyrna, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta.  Troop 61 is the oldest continuously chartered troop in the Atlanta Area Council being originally chartered in 1927.  The Chartering Organization for Troop 61 is Bethany United Methodist Church, located at 760 Hurt Road at the intersection with Hicks Road.  The troop meets every Monday, excluding holidays, at 7:30 PM in the scout lodge located across the lower parking lot from the church.
 
Our troop has a very active calendar with an outing usually on the third weekend of each month.  Activities include but are not limited to camping trips that have emphasis on fishing, wilderness survival, shooting/shotgun/archery, backpacking, cycling, climbing, and water sports.  We typically schedule a snow skiing weekend each February.
 
The troop stresses the patrol method and strives to be a "boy run" troop.  Please feel free to visit our troop and see if you want to join the fun of scouting.  

You can contact us at scoutmastertroop61smyrna@gmail.com and/or come and see us on Monday nights at 7:30.  Bethany United Methodist Church is on the northeast corner of Hurt & Hicks Road across Hurt Road from Shaw AME Temple.  The scout lodge backs up to Hicks Rd and is across the lower parking lot from the church.
