Join Troop 577

Are you a Webelos II who have or are about to get your Arrow of Light? Or are you in grades 6-12 and interested in joining Boy Scouting?

Boy Scout Troop 577 of Kirkland invites you to become a member of our Troop.  As a Boy Scout you will enjoy new experiences with your fellow Scouts.  You will also learn new skills while advancing in rank and earning Merit Badges, which could lead you to the rank of Eagle, the highest achievement in Scouting.  You have the opportunity to remain active in Boy Scouts throughout your middle school and high school years. 

 

We meet every Monday from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at Lake Washington United Methodist Church.  
The address is: 7525 132nd Ave NE, Kirkland, WA, 98033

 

We invite you to come see us in action!   Our Troop is active, yet still a size where everyone knows each other's name.  You are welcome to learn about us first-hand by attending one of our Troop meetings or Outings.  Call us in advance to confirm that we’re meeting on the particular Monday.  

 

Visiting troop meetings–both this troop and others–is a good way to find out if you feel welcome and comfortable while you and your parent compare the personality of the troop with your goals.

 


Boy-Led

We are a boy-led Troop, which means that to the greatest extent possible, the Scouts run their Troop meetings, decide in which events they will participate, where they will go each month for their outings, and to what degree and how quickly they will pursue advancement opportunities. While we encourage and support the Scouts' goals, and hope each will someday attain the rank of Eagle Scout, we also expect them and their families to pursue the work involved to achieve those goals.

 

The Troop adult leaders will work with and help Scouts to learn and advance, but the Scouts must show the interest and motivation to do so.  Much of the learning will take place on our monthly outings. We find this helps the young men in our Troop to actually learn the various Scout skills and know how to apply them rather than just learning them in a classroom-like setting at Troop meetings for the short term goal of getting another badge.
