Troop 162: Time Tested Success

Troop 162 has been an active troop since 1945, and it is has seen many Scouts come and go. One hundred and nineteen of them became Eagle Scouts.

Our Troop isn’t just about focusing on advancement. We have slept on an 888-foot, 45,000-ton battleship, sold 625 Christmas trees in less than three weeks, and worked together to lift our entire troop over a 16-foot wall.

We are a very active Troop, and go camping once a month. Past trips that we have gone on include biking through Virginia, backpacking, skiing, and high adventure such as Sea Base and Philmont.
