I'm New

Are you new to Troop 175 and thinking about joining?  Is your boy aged 11 to 17?  You're at the right place!  We know you have lots of questions.  Read on and we’ll give you plenty of info.

Troop 175 is for boys aged 11 to 17 in Decatur, Georgia. 

If your boy is less than 10 years old, he’s too young for our Troop. If you have a boy or girl in K – 5th grade, we encourage you to join Decatur’s Pack 175 (Cub Scouts).

For more info about Pack 175 Cub Scouts for younger boys & girls, please visit www.pack175decatur.com

Cub Scouts are different than Boy Scouts.

Here’s a great BSA article that outlines the important differences: Cub Scouts vs. Boy Scouts
