Troop 97 FAQ

Question #7—Can girls join Troop 97?

YES! Troop 97 is actually TWO troops, one for girls and one for boys. The girls' side of Troop 97, which started in early 2019, is one of the two oldest girls troops in the county. All the girls attended BSA summer camp 2019 on a Montana island, and all are signed up to attend 2021 summer camp in the Colorado Black Forest (unfortunately there was no 2020 summer camp due to the pandemic). We meet weekly, camp monthly, perform service projects, go backpacking, canoeing, cycling,... You get to share adventures with the other girls that you can't get anywhere else. And if you want to become an Eagle Scout, that's an option, too.

Right now, the girls and boys troops both meet on Monday nights. But each troop has its own elected youth leaders and adult advisors. Some outings are with the boys troop and some are just the girls (it's up to the youth leaders to decide where to go, what to do, and whether activities are together or separate).

We need parents who want to be involved with their daughters in Scouting (all adult positions are open to both men & women, but BSA requires at least one registered female adult on any activity involving girls).
