BSA Troop 368

Farmington Presbyterian Church
Germantown, Tennessee

BEST IN THE STATE

  • Home

BSA Troop 368 is in Germantown, Tennessee, right here.  We are sponsored by Farmington Presbyterian Church. We meet on Monday nights from 7 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. in the church’s Fellowship Hall, from mid-August through early June.  We take a few weeks off in the Summer to give our scouts time to solo sail around the world, become a NASA astronaut, or do NOTHING AT ALL!  And it gives our adult leaders a chance to relax and recharge.

Our troop maintains an active outdoor program, including:

We welcome all boys, ages 11-18, whether you have any Scouting experience or not.

We also welcome parents.   We’d love for you to get involved and enjoy our events with your son.  And we can put your talents to use, too.  Are you adept at computers? cooking? orienteering?  Are you an amateur photographer?  Can you tell venomous from non-venomous rabbits?  We welcome all the help we can get in planning and coordinating events within the troop.  Volunteer today!

To find out more, contact Scott Jenkins, Scoutmaster.

What is so special about scouting?

Only one in four boys in America will become a Scout. It is interesting to know that in general, of the leaders of this nation in business, religion, and politics, three out of four have been Scouts. Of any 100 boys who become Scouts…

  • Each of the 100 will learn something from Scouting. Almost all will develop hobbies that will add interest throughout the rest of their lives. Many will find their future vocation through merit badge work and Scouting contacts.
  • Seventeen will become Scout leaders and will give leadership and guidance to thousands of additional boys.
  • Twelve will be from families who do not belong to a church. Through Scouting, these 12 Scouts and their families will be brought into contact with a church and will continue to be active all their lives. Six of the 100 will become pastors.
  • One will use his training to save another person’s life and many will credit their Scout training with saving their own life.
  • Four will reach the rank of Eagle and at least one will later say that he values his Eagle badge above his college degree.
