About Troop 7

Also see our Blog and Updates.

Welcome to Troop7annarbor.org! This is the webpage of Troop 7 of Ann Arbor. Troop 7 now has about 30 registered scouts. Every month of the year, Troop 7 goes on either a camp out or has a fun day. The troop meets most Monday nights in the Social Hall of First Presbyterian Church  (Map) from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. We would like to welcome any young men 11 or older but younger than 18 to visit and look us over. A Cub Scouting background is not required.

Boy Scout Troop 7 was first formed in March 1918 at the YMCA in Ann Arbor. It then moved briefly to the Methodist Church and in 1920 to First Presbyterian. About 2000 scouts have been associated with Troop 7 in the last 80 years.

Troop 7 is boy led, which means the boys plan the outings. They also run the meetings, and choose boys to fill the positions including Senior Patrol Leader, Assistant Senior Patrol Leaders, and Patrol Leaders. They also decide the patrol names.

Troop 7 goes to Camp Gerber in Michigan. They earn merit badges that boys couldn’t do by themselves, like rifle and shotgun shooting, sailing, canoeing, emergency preparedness, first aid, and space exploration. The camp can hold lots of troops all at once, so there is great diversity and stories.
