No Meeeting...Memorial Day

​​​​​Welcome from Our Scoutmaster

After 103 years, our parents and alumni are proud of the 170 scouts who have earned their rank of Eagle as members of Boy Scout Troop 31.   The troop remains and focuses it's leadership to be truly "a scout lead and a scout run troop."  

As leaders of Boy Scout Troop 31, the boys manage and control all aspects of the troop operations from planning a simple meal for a patrol, to running a meeting, or planning a a Spring trip out West.  Through years of successful programs, Boy Scout Troop 31 has created an environment that challenges boys to learn what it takes to be self-sufficient, self-reliant, and self-motivated while simultaneously caring about and leading others.   We strive for our scouts to search out leadership positions and to obtain training whenever possible.  Our Troop is proud each year to send multiple scouts to NYLT (National Youth Leadership Training) to further develop and hone their basic and leadership skills.     

Our adult "advisers" provide guidance to the scout leadership so that they can accomplish the goals they have set for themselves and the troop.  We follow the guidelines and philosophy outlined by the Wood Badge program ideals to mentor scouts in providing programs and activities that strengthen and develop character.

If you are interested in visiting or joining Boy Scout Troop 31, we welcome you to visit a troop meeting and experience it first-hand. I look forward to meeting with you; feel free to contact us at to set up appointment to visit Troop 31.

Yours in Scouting,
