Philmont Boy Scout Ranch Hike

Philmont Boy Scout Ranch Hike

Why Troop 483?  Since 1954, Troop 483 has produced over one hundred Eagle Scouts!

Our adult leadership aims to focus on the individual Scout in order to help develop character and leadership qualities through application of the aims and methods of scouting formulated by Scouting’s great founder Robert Baden-Powell over a century ago.

We are a boy-run troop.  If you’re expecting all troop events to run like well oiled clockwork under the active leadership of a cadre of adult leaders who micromanage every aspect of the event, you may be disappointed.  But, if like us, your expectation is that Boy Scouting will give your son the precious opportunity not found in most other youth organizations to actively lead other youth, then you have found the right Troop.

We are a very active Troop with roughly thirty outings per year.  Along with our regular Monday night meetings, we keep the boys rather busy.  Over the years Troop 483 has also performed thousands of community service activities.  For 25 years Troop 483 provided holiday flag service for the city of Glendora.  Annually, the troop performs a variety of ceremonies, including a flag retirement in conjunction with the Daughters of the American Revolution. Come join us!
