Open House for Troop 84 Boy Scouts
Troop 84 of New Philadelphia will host an Open House event at 7 pm on Monday, September 12, 2022, at Broadway Global Methodist Church, 120 Church Avenue SE, New Philadelphia. Troop 84 is New Philadelphia’s oldest Scouts BSA unit, having been chartered for 89 years and has a rich history of growing young men into respectable leaders. They are currently seeking 11-17 year-olds to join Scouting as part of one of our nation’s longest-running youth-led programs. In their troop, with many others, each youth member has the opportunity to learn important life skills and can learn more in-depth skills from more than 135 individual merit badges while working their way toward the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest youth rank in the scouting program. Annually they devote one week of summer to providing a unique camping experience at Buckeye Council’s beautiful Seven Ranges Scout Reservation where each scout can advance even further by learning to become better swimmers, astronomers, and botanists while working toward any number of the camps offered merit badges. Most importantly, Troop 84 is active in not only New Philadelphia but in the surrounding communities where they can often be found performing various community service projects with multiple civic organizations, local municipalities, area churches, and veteran organizations. They encourage all interested participants to join them on Monday, September 12th at 7 pm to see how they can be a part of the fun and learn about all that scouting has to offer each youth it serves.
