Our Charter

Every BSA Troop has a Charter Organization who is granted a charter by the BSA. The organization may be a church, civic group, school, or other such organization that seeks permission and works in conjunction with the BSA to provide an outreach program for youth. The chartered organization is the "franchisee" and as such is the "owner-operator" of the Scouting program.

In the case of Troop 737, our Charter Organization isĀ Evergreen Lutheran Church (www.evergreenlutheran.org), or ELC. ELC provides a representative (a former Scoutmaster!) as our ELC liaison and committee member, use of their facilities for meetings and training, and a garage and storage shed to store our camping equipment, files, library, flags, and trailers. Troop 737 provides support for ELC, volunteering with the annual church cleanup, Grove Sale fundraiser, and Scout Mass. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have this relationship with ELC, and look forward to a long and productive future together.
