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!

We meet every Thursday night at 7pm at Memorial Presbyterian Church on the campus of Palm Beach Atlantic University.  New members are always welcome!

LIVE Troop Meeting this Thursday 10/29 at 7 pm

Posted on Oct 24 2020 - 12:16pm

This Thursday's Troop13 meeting will be LIVE and in person.  We will also be broadcasting the meeting over Zoom for those that are unable to attend.  Our hosts will be the Prada family who has very graciously offered to hold a troop meeting in their yard located at 2479 Prarie Road, West Palm Beach, 33406.  Of course, masks will be required and everyone will need to practice social distancing.  Temperatures will be taken upon arrival and hand sanitizer will be available.  Please attend the meeting over Zoom if you are experiencing any symptoms or have been exposed to anyone with Covid19.  Everyone should bring a camp chair, a water bottle, and wear their Class A uniforms.  This will be a great opportunity to bring your Scout Handbooks and get caught up on your signatures.  Please park outside the wooden gates in the grass area.  Parents are welcome to attend or scouts can be dropped off and picked up again at 8:30.  This week the Hammerhead Patrol will be running the troop meeting and their skill demonstration will be fire starting.  There will also be a fun fire-starting patrol competition.  This would be the perfect opportunity to invite a friend who might be interested in joining scouting to come to check out a LIVE and in-person Troop 13 meeting.

Be a Scout Day at Tanah Keeta on Saturday 10/31

Posted on Oct 18 2020 - 9:15am

This year's BASD will be held on October 31st from 10 am to 4 pm, but scouts should plan to be dropped off at 9 am to help with set up.  This is a great opportunity for our Troop 13 scouts to help with our council's Cub Scout recruiting effort and to earn service hours at the same time.  Remember- Cub Scout recruiting now is Scouts BSA recruiting down the road.  Our troop will set up and demonstrate a Scouts BSA patrol camping area for the event.  Scouts can also help at the slingshot range, traffic control, logistics, or helping any of the numerous Cub Scout Packs with their activities.  Scouts should wear their Class A's w/ a Class B underneath.  Also, be sure to bring a water bottle and some cash for the food trucks.  Bringing your ten essentials is never a bad idea.   Please sign up through the website so that we know who will be attending.

Scouting for Food- Bags Out on Saturday 11/7

Posted on Oct 18 2020 - 9:15am

All Troop 13 scouts should plan to attend this nationwide BSA day of service.  Our territory this year is the Old Northwood Historic District in WPB.  Our goal is to buddy up and blanket the neighborhood with Scouting for Food bags.  These bags will be pick-up by us on the following Saturday 11/14- hopefully, filled with non-perishable food to be donated to a local food bank.  The more scouts that attend, the quicker we will get the job done.  Service hours will be earned during this event.  Please sign up for both days using the troop website so that we know who will be attending.

Scouting for Food- Bags In on Saturday 11/14

Posted on Oct 18 2020 - 9:14am

All Troop 13 scouts should plan to attend this 2nd nationwide BSA day of service.  We will be picking up the bags that we dropped off the previous Saturday (hopefully, filled with non-perishable food) and delivering everything to a local food bank.  We will need help from our Troop 13 parents too.  Again, the more scouts that attend, the quicker we will get the job done.  Service hours will be earned during this event.  Please sign up for both days using the troop website so that we know who will be attending.
