Join Troop 1176
New or experienced. We want you!
If you're a female youth and new to Boy Scouts of America and are thinking about joining the Scouts BSA program, or if you are currently a Cub Scout looking for a troop to join, we hope that you'll consider Troop 1176. Scouting is a great program and Troop offers a wide range of opportunities for girls ages 10 to 18. Scout BSA troops vary widely in size, activities, and programs. When looking for a troop to join, it's important to make sure you find a "goodness of fit" — the leaders, scouts, activities and overall "feel" should be a good match. Troop 1176 sets our activities to best meet both the immediate and long term needs of our Scouts.

The Youth Application

We will need one completed Youth Application for each registering scout.

If you are a parent or adult that would like to volunteer under any capacity or if you would like to participate in overnight outings you will need to be a registered adult. The application process includes a background check and you will also need to complete a free online Youth Protection Training and possibly other training specific to your volunteer position.

$33 per registered adult for registration**
$100 per scout for yearly dues***
Of course, these costs may be offset by unit fundraising and other available scholarship funds. Please contact Scoutmaster for details.

***Dues cover monthly program costs, patches and advancement awards, supplies for activities and for new/replacement/repair of troop equipment.
The official Scouts BSA uniform is a part of the Scouts BSA program and therefore required. We do however understand that it may take some time for new scouts to get the full uniform and give all new Scouts several weeks to purchase their uniform.
