About Troop 78

Troop Meetings

The troop meets every Monday (except for occasional holiday) from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM, in the First Baptist Wylie Event Center located at 200 N. Ballard Ave. Wylie, Texas 75098

We encourage each parent to periodically volunteer some of their time to the Troop and Scouts. Don’t forget this is a 100% volunteer organization! Each parent is required to complete on-line training for our Scouts. This Youth Protection Training course takes just acouple of hours to complete and is good for 2 years. Safe! Fun! Adventures!

A few additional Troop factoids for your consideration:

  • We currently have aproximatly 55 Scouts between the ages of 11-17 and they are very active in their participation.
  • The Troops goal is to camp every month with some exceptions during the hot Texas summers. We try to minimize the number of missed church days due to camping throughout the year.
  • We are Christian based Troop and have devotions and prayer at each Troop meeting. The Scouts also deliver a brief worship service on Sunday mornings if we are camping we call a Scout’s own service.
  • We are a full uniformed Troop so new scouts will have some uniform startup costs
  • The Troop is backpacking focused. Which means the Scouts are responsible for acquiring their backpacking gear and supplies and the troop provides tents and cooking supplies. Being gear light allows us to explore more remote locations, lowers expenses (for parents and the troop), and promotes scout self-sufficiency.
  • We encourage each parent to volunteer some of their time periodically to the Troop and Scouts. Don’t forget this is a 100% volunteer organization! Each parent is required to complete on-line training for our Scouts. This Youth Protection Training course takes just a couple of hours to complete and is good for 2 years.
  • The Troop also has a solid shooting sports program which includes rifle , shotgun and archery. We usually do 2 big troop shoots a year at local scout camps with our own Instructors and Chief Range Saftey Officers
