Welcome to Troop 3143

At Troop 3143, we create leaders. Our troop provides a program for young people that build character, train them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.

 

 We are very active in the outdoors and in the community. We camp monthly, including a full week of summer camp and some of the older scouts will have the opportunity to backpack for two weeks in New Mexico. Our camps are filled with fun and activities including rafting, skiing, hiking are a few to name.

Attention Scouts and Parents:  I have only heard back from one person.  Please, if you are interested in participating in a high adventure camp in 2022, we need your feedback so we can start planning.  Please work with your scouts to fill out the below survey monkey with their interest in attending 2021 Winter camp (during winter break) in addition to the high adventure in 2022.  In the survey, you can elect more than one High Adventure camp.  The high adventure base with the most interest will be chosen for 2022.  We also need adult advisors for high adventure, please indicate if you would be interested in attending as well.  Additional information can be found on the survey monkey as well as links and videos for each HA base on our website:  https://johnscreek3143.mytroop.us/node/1044  We will leave this survey open for a couple of weeks, so please fill it out soon.  If you have any questions, please contact Chris Price.   https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QG6CBSL
