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 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.

The form needs the signature of at least one parent. If you are currently holding a position and you wish to keep it, you still need to fill out a form for reelection.

  • Monday 4/25 Meeting Location and Time Change Reminder: we are not meeting at Crossroads--we are meeting at the Rotary shelter, which is across the street from the Helicopter in Lincoln Park. Do not show up at the church at 7:00pm, as there will be no one there. The meeting will run from 6:00pm to roughly 8:00pm. You may wear your class B (pack shirts are fine for the new scouts), and don't forget to dress for the weather. Please bring any discs that you have to make sure that there is enough to share. Write your name clearly on any discs that you bring. There will be a checkout sheet for those who are borrowing discs.
