Welcome to Troop 163

Since the 1950's, Boy Scout Troop 163 has helped hundreds of young men by instilling in them the values of the Boy Scout program: to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Our Troop generally meets every Monday at Crossroads United Methodist Church in Washington, IL at 7:00 pm.  Please see our calendar for the most current schedule of events.

If you would like more information about the Troop, please contact a leader found on the Adult Leadership page.
