Scout Troop 493 will soon welcome the addition of "Troop 5493" to our scouting family at Wycliffe Presbyterian Church! Yes, after years of standing alone, we welcomed Cub Pack 493 into our fold, and now we will soon welcome the addition of our sister Troop into the mix! With the unanimous approval of the Church Session, we hope to have the new unit chartered, in-place this coming fall with at least 5 female scouts, a scoutmaster, committee chairman, and a troop treasurer. Stay tuned for further updates, and if you know anyone who would be interested in joining the troop, or fulfilling a committee position in this inaugural scouting unit, give us a shout at e-mail address: [email protected] Thanks! 🙂

During this time of uncertainty while experiencing such an acute health crisis, the scouting program continues to explore new and innovative ways to continue providing programs to our scouting families. Virtual SMC's, BOR's, and M/B classes are being conducted. Requirement time frames are being adjusted. On-line meetings are taking place. We hope to return to some sense of normalcy as soon as practical, so continue reading those e-mail messages and performing virtual advancement. We'll be here when you all return! Stay safe!
