About Troop 175

Troop 175 has 80+ scouts and 20+ adult leaders. We meet every Tuesday evening during the school year. We do 10 camping trips/events a year…rafting, ziplining, rock climbing, kayaking, wilderness survival, backpacking and more. In June we wrap up the scouting year with a week at Camp 175, our campground on beautiful Lake Allatoona.

Troop 175 was chartered in 1943 by the Decatur First United Methodist Church and the troop has been in continuous operation ever since. The Troop is now chartered by the Harold Byrd American Legion Post 66 in Avondale Estates, Georgia.

Troop 175 = Boy Scouts = age 11 – 17

Troop 175 is for boys aged 11 to 17. If your boy is in 6th grade or older, he’s the right age for Troop 175.


We invite you to visit one of our weekly meetings:
7 p.m. Tuesdays
August – May (except holidays) at the
Scout Hut behind Glennwood Elementary: 440 E. Ponce de Leon Avenue, Decatur 30030
