How to Join

Requirements

Troops 737 adhere to the BSA age requirements for membership. In order to join a Scouts BSA Troop a Scout must:

Be 11 years old, have completed the 5th grade and be at least 10 years old, or have earned the Arrow of Light Award. A Scout may remain active in a Scouts BSA Troop until his or her 18th birthday.

Scouts that do not meet the minimum age requirements are encouraged to join a Cub Scout Pack.

Troops 737 encourage prospective Scouts to visit our Troops, maybe even more than once, before joining. It is good for a prospective Scout to see how a Troop functions and to find out if it will be a good fit.

We are pleased that you are considering joining one of our Troops. It is our hope that your time with our Troops will be fun and rewarding. For more information regarding the Scouts BSA program, please visit Scouts BSA
