Troop Info


Troop 565 was established in February of 2004. Our Chartered Organization is The Knights of Columbus, Council 1313.


Our program follows the guidelines and ideas of Scouting as prescribed by the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America. We provide a high quality Scouting experience with emphasis on outdoor activities, advancement, and leadership development. Our activities range from hikes and campouts to participation in district and council programs. Our troop is “boy led” as described by the patrol method of scouting.


Participation by parents is crucial to the success of our efforts to assist the scouts in developing and executing their program. We encourage all parents to be involved with the troop and your scout’s  activities to the greatest extent possible for your personal schedules. We encourage attendance at all troop and committee meetings, as well as our other scheduled activities.
