Welcome to the fun and adventure of Scouting and membership in Troop 287! The following tidbits tell you a little about us.
Troop 287 was founded in 1961 and is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Killeen. It has been a continually active Troop stressing the purposes of the Boy Scouts of America. which are the development of CITIZENSHIP, CHARACTER, and FITNESS. Our program is designed to achieve these purposes and is diverse. The program intends to challenge your son while enabling him to learn and grow at his pace. Scouting is not a just a boy activity; rather it is, and will continue to be a family affair. You are invited to be an active participant in his experience. Your support is important to your son and can be accomplish in many ways. You can be a Merit Badge Counselor, serve on the Troop Committee, be an Assistant Scoutmaster, or simply go camping with us. You are always welcome at Troop meetings.
If you take the OUTING out of Scouting, nothing remains. Troop 287 puts the OUTING in Scouting in a big way. There are monthly campouts lasting Friday to Sunday. Eagle Scout projects, caroling at Christmas time. and other activities. So, as you can see, we keep the OUTING in Scouting.
