Welcome Troop 13 Scouts and Friends

Who We Are

Founded in 1937, we are the oldest continuously chartered troop in Gulfstream Council.  We are a scout led troop, and we believe that scouts learn best by doing, even if they make mistakes.  We are also a fully integrated, co-ed troop, welcoming both male and female scouts. 

What We Do

We are an active troop.  At meetings, we play games and learn scout skills.  We also plan for our next outings.  We camp at least once a month during every month during the school year.  On these camp outs, we practice scout skills, like hiking, swimming, backpacking, and canoeing, and sometimes snow skiing, white water rafting, river tubing, and scuba diving (for those who are certified).  During the summers, we go to summer camps, both locally and out of state, usually in the mountains.  Hello cooler weather!  

We believe in service – we seek to give back to our charter organization, Memorial Presbyterian Church,  and our community.   

Come join us!

Normally, we meet every Thursday night at 7pm at Memorial Presbyterian Church on the campus of Palm Beach Atlantic University. 


We have been doing online meetings during Covid lockdown.

New members are always welcome!

Dear Scouts,

The Conservation and Environment Good Turn Award is being retired on 12/31/2020 from the BSA program. See below requirements and the link. If you think you have completed this award through Scouting and are eligible to receive it, you will need to email Mr. DiMare and Mrs. Reynolds and send us a few paragraphs explaining to us how you believe you have completed this Award. We know a lot of you throughout the years may have completed this award.  All emails are due by Dec. 3 to both Mr. DiMare and Mrs. Reynolds and we will present your email to the scoutmasters to confirm if indeed you have completed this award. This would be a great award to receive before it is retired from the program.
Tell us in your report to us...

POSTPONED- TK Takeover Campout #3

Posted on Nov 21 2020 - 8:04pm

Due to an increase in Covid19 cases throughout the country, and a forecasted spike in cases after the Thanksgiving holiday, the Troop Committee has decided to postpone the TK Takeover Campout #3 until after the New Year.  Additionally, all troop meetings, including the upcoming Court of Honor, will be virtual until further notice.  Patrols and small groups of 10 or less may meet, but only with strict adherence to the CDC and Troop 13 Covid19 guidelines.
