About Boy Scouts

Written by scouting.org

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.

For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes -- and, through over a century of experience, knows -- that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.

About Troop 263

Written by Austin

Boys from Highland Middle School, Highland High School, and various schools in other towns belong to our troop. We meet every Wednesday night at 7 p.m. at the South Fire Station in Highland.

During our meetings, which are boy-led and run, the Scouts plan campouts, work on rank advancements, and play games. We go camping every month to places all around our area.

Any boy that has completed the fifth grade or is between 11 and 17-years-old can join our troop. If you'd like to join our troop, feel free to stop into one of our meetings any time.
