Welcome to Troop 179! We are part of the Princess Anne District in the Tidewater Council. Our troop was established in September 1991 and is chartered by St. John the Apostle Catholic Church.
The Boy Scout model is to be "Boy Led / Adult Guided." Here, the Scouts are in charge and make the decisions about weekly meetings, monthly outings, and summer camp destinations. We also have a strong high adventure program for older Scouts. Adult leaders provide an environment that allows boys to experience what it means to be a "boy scout". If this sounds like something you (or your son) would be interested in for yourselves, please feel free to stop by and visit us any Thursday night.
Dues are $5 per month per scout. Scouts must be current with their dues to participate in troop events, including monthly outings and summer camp. Dues help pay for troop equipment, advancement materials, merit badge books, and other troop-related materials.
