The Basics

The Basics

Troop 271 meets Thursday evenings from 7:00–8:30 at Mayflower Congregational Church, 2345 Robinson Road SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49506. About once a month, we take a break to do something different (maybe a service project, maybe an off-site merit badge requirement, maybe just something fun). So if you’re planning to visit, it’s a good idea to contact one of the adult leaders to make sure you know where we’ll be.

We are an active, boy-led troop of about 25 scouts, with (almost) monthly campouts and service projects throughout the year.

Service Projects

Our service projects are usually scheduled a month to six weeks in advance, in order to accommodate the community’s needs and the Troop’s schedule. Below are some of the “traditional” projects we do.
