Join Troop 93!
Learning by doing is a hallmark of outdoor education. Unit meetings offer information and knowledge used on outdoor adventures. A leader may describe and demonstrate a Scouting skill at a meeting, but the way Scouts truly learn an outdoor skill is to do it themselves on a unit outing.
Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 93's Website
» Weekly Troop meetings are held on Monday nights at VFW Post #2718 on Lincoln Avenue in Franklin Square.
» The meetings begin at promptly at 7:30 pm and end at 8:45 pm. Boys are expected to be in full Class-A uniform at all troop meetings.
» Boys are asked to bring $1.00 weekly dues (even if they miss a meeting), and their Scout Handbook to each meeting.
» We ask that parents come into the VFW at the end of the meeting when picking up Scouts, so that we can make announcements, hand out paperwork and, more importantly, as a safety precaution.
» VFW Post # 2718 telephone: (516) 354-9393
We are a very active Boy Scout Troop with approximately 40 boys in the Troop, divided into patrols for troop activites and events. If you are an 11-year-old boy (or fifth grade), or if you are a Cub Scout who is moving up to a Boy Scout Troop after earning your Arrow of Light, we invite you to join us.
We have a copy of “Welcome to Troop 93” available for download. We plan our activities and our annual calendar well in advance so that you know about all of the upcoming events of our troop. Visit our photo gallery for pictures of our latest trips and activities, and our Parent’s FAQ. Please use this website as an additional resource for information about Troop 93 and our activities.
In the outdoors, youth have opportunities to acquire skills that make them more self-reliant. They can explore canoe paths and hiking trails and complete challenges they first thought were beyond their ability. Attributes of good character become part of a youth as he learns to cooperate to meet outdoor challenges that may include extreme weather, difficult trails and portages, and dealing with nature's unexpected circumstances.
