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!

Important Summer Camp and Parent Meeting during the March 11th Troop Meeting

Posted on Mar 6 2021 - 11:11pm

During our March 11th virtual Troop Meeting, a representative of both Camp Lanoche and Camp Rainey Mountain will be online to give presentations promoting their summer camp programs and answering any questions you may have.  Troop 13 will be attending summer camp at Camp La No Che June 27- July 3 and Camp Rainey Mountain July 11-17.  These are beautiful and highly regarded camps.  If you want to go to Rainey Mountain, you must have successfully completed a week of camp in the past or have prior Scoutmaster approval.  Registering for summer camp is a 3 step process.  First, research the camps and make your decision.  Google them and download and read the program guides for each camp--they are located in the files section of the website.  Second, pay your fees online in time for merit badge selection in March.  Third, send your merit badge selections to Mrs. Bell in a timely manner so you get the classes you want.   Additionally, while the scouts are playing their game during the second half of the meeting, the adults will break out for a parent meeting.  Be sure to be logged into a separate device from your scouts for this meeting.  Here is the Zoom link-

Spring Break Backpacking Trek

Posted on Feb 11 2021 - 5:56pm

We have changed our location for the Spring Break backpacking trek, moving south to lower elevation to hopefully avoid weather complications.  We will be flying into Atlanta and hiking either the Foothills Trail in South and North Carolina, or one of many available trails in the North Georgia Mountains.  Registration is now live and cuts off February 7.  The cost is estimated at $200, but may change depending on airline costs and ground transportation.  This trip is mandatory for everyone going to Philmont and is open to any capable scout or leader.
