To join Boy Scouts, a boy must either be 11, OR have finished Fifth Grade, OR have earned the Cub Scout Arrow of Light Award. He does not need to have been in Cub Scouts or a Webelos Scout.

Youths interested in joining Troop 5 are encouraged to browse our web-site. View our Troop Calendar to see the many outings our Scouts have enjoyed.

Before joining we ask prospective scouts and their parents to visit at least two regular troop meetings and meet with an Assistant Scoutmaster. This gives the youth and parents a chance to make sure that Boy Scouts and Troop 5 is for them.

Application and other necessary forms can be found under RESOURCES/Forms and should be turned in to the Membership Chair. Dues are $100 per year. This fee covers BSA membership fees, a subscription to Boys Life, advancement patches and badges, as well as adult and youth leadership training.
