The Barn is a great setting for scouts of all ages.  Inside the Barn, we have patrol rooms, meeting areas, and history of the troop and other parts of the BSA.  Our weekly meeting is led by our Senior Patrol Leader with the help of the Patrol Leaders Council with a different program each week. We have on site rappelling, amateur (HAM) radio, gardening, woodcarving, archery, a knots & lashings room, a map room, a library, a coal forge, astronomy, honey bee-keeping and more.

We have many outdoor activities like backpacking/hiking, camping, canoeing/kayaking, shooting sports, camporees, high adventure trips, etc.  Membership in our Troop is >100 Scouts and >60 adult members.  If you would like to bring your unit for a visit, please contact us.  We look forward to meeting you!
