As an active troop with over 60 scouts and more than 15 trained scoutmasters on our roster, we are able to offer a full calendar of events that serve scouts with varied interests. Troop 31 is supported by our strong Troop Committee that has over 20 adults who volunteer their time for a variety of tasks. Parents are always welcome to attend any troop event and are encouraged to be active in our troop.

Our boy-led troop strives to achieve the three aims of Boy Scouting:  growth in moral strength and character, participation in citizenship, and development of physical, mental, and emotional fitness. We offer a variety of trips and experiences including camping, backpacking, canoeing, and other outdoor activities. They are the foundation of our program, though we also enjoy high adventure trips, historical tours, family gatherings, and other special events. Troop 31 meetings are held on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 pm in the gymnasium at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church. If you are interested in finding out more about Troop 31, please send a request via the Contact Us page.
