Our program strives to achieve the Aims of Scouting: character development, citizenship training, mental, and personal fitness. The emphasis of Troop 37’s program is on outdoor activities and advancement through the various Scouting ranks. We have a strong outdoor program that includes camping, hiking, backpacking, canoeing, skiing/snowboarding, and swimming.
The Troop goes camping once a month from September to June (except December) and attends one week of summer camp in July. Troop Scouts and Adults have gone to Philmont High Adventure Camp as well as attending District, Council, and National Jamborees. The Troop has had weekend camping trips to Vermont, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and many local Scout camps. We also hold an annual, and much anticipated, family trip each year which is our Troop Canoe Trip along the Delaware Water Gap, which all Troop family members are invited to attend.
Along the way, the Scouts earn badges and advance in rank, and have a lot of fun doing so.
Joining Troop 37
We are happy to welcome new Scouts at any time, whether you’re bridging from Cub Scouts or have no previous Scouting experience. Troop 37 is open to all boys between the ages of 11 years old (or has completed the fifth grade) and 17 years old regardless of race, religion, or creed. Scouts need not start at age 11, we have had boys join the program as late as age 16 and thoroughly and successfully enjoy their Scouting experience.

The Friday evening program includes Scout skills, rank advancement, merit badges, games, inter-patrol activities, guest speakers and specialty nights.
Troop 37 dues are $140.00* per Scout per year. The dues cover the BSA National membership, annual registration fee, insurance fees, Boys Life subscription, uniform advancement/badges insignia and the purchase and maintenance of the Troop camping equipment and supplies.
Individual activities may have fees associated with them. If so, Scouts and their parents will be notified well in advance. Individual fees for all weekend camping trips and activities are paid by each Scout as he attends each event.
There are also fund raising events, such as the Pancake Breakfast and Troop Car Washes, in which the Scouts can participate to raise funds to be used for summer camp attendance.
