Welcome !

Our Troop was established in 2003 and resides in the Dan Patch District of the Northern Star Council. We meet all year round every other Tuesday at St. Mark's School in Shakopee (at the corner of Scott St. and 3rd Avenue). We aim to run a boy-driven program with an active advancement program. We have monthly outings that include camping trips, biking trips, hiking trips and district camporees. We currently have 70+ active boys in multiple Patrols. We camp using the Patrol system and our own Troop patrol boxes and equipment. Our Troop Committee consists of dedicated parent volunteers who believe strongly in the aims of Boy Scouting.

Are you unclear about what you need to complete in order to achieve your next rank? Do you have enough service hours completed for your next rank? You'll want to make sure you have everything completed when you sign up for your scoutmaster conference. One of the exciting features on our new web site is that scouts and their parents can look at the advancement information we enter into TroopMaster (our advancement software). You can see when you completed each rank, all the merit badges you have earned, all that you have completed towards your next rank and all that you have left to do for your next rank.
