Welcome to Troop 173!
Welcome to the Scouting family where we help enrich the lives of boys and endeavor to make a positive impact in the kind of men they become. By becoming a parent of a Boy Scout, you are setting your son out on the grand adventure of Scouting. This is a tremendously important and rewarding endeavor that you will be able to share with him. Troop 173 is dedicated to fulfilling the Mission of the Boy Scouts of America by providing a safe and fun program of service to the community, leadership development, and outdoor adventure to its youth members, based on the values contained in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Using the Patrol Method of organization, the Troop is "boy run" with Adult Scouters serving as coaches and advisors. For more information please see our New Parent Guide or contact us.
Troop 173 Leadership Change
Troop 173 has a dedicated group of adult leaders and volunteers who contribute much of their free time and talents to helping our boys grow. We've been fortunate to have the talents and capabilities of Jared Feinberg leading our Troop for the past 7 months. Due to his many other roles both in and out of Scouting, Mr. Feinberg has decided to step down as Troop 173 Scoutmaster. Keith Holmes, an already dedicated and experienced ASM will be stepping into the role of Scoutmaster effective immediately. Mr. Feinberg will be continuing in the role of ASM. Thank you, Mr. Feinberg, for your dedication to the Troop!
