Boy Scout Troop #1563

Boy Scout Troop 1563 meets weekly on Monday nights from 6:30-8:00 pm at Bethany United Methodist Church (September – May).

Troop 1563 was chartered by Bethany UMC in 1976.  Since then, our Troop membership has steadily increased to our current roster of 40 Scouts.

We were proud to add our 65th Eagle Scout to our ranks on February 11, 2014.

While we do a lot of the fun activities, our Troop focuses on learning Scout Skills, developing youth leadership and encouraging and supporting our Scouts to rise to the rank of Eagle.  Our weekly Troop meetings tend to focus on Scout Skills, rank advancement and merit badges.

All of our registered adult leaders are trained and several have completed Scouting’s premier adult training course – Wood Badge.  We are blessed to have such active adults.
