Welcome to Troop 224

Troop 224’s objective is to maintain an active and varied outdoor program that has an outing at least 8-10 times per year. Every 6 months after officer elections the troop will plan all of its outings for the next period.  A calendar is then generated that gets posted to the web and distributed to Scouts and parents.

Troop 224 is an organized group of scouts and adults ready for action and adventure.  We meet weekly on Mondays at 7:30pm to 8:30pm at Greenville Oaks Church in Allen Texas.  You cannot take the “OUTING” out of “SCOUTING.” In fact most boys join and stay in Troop 224 so that they can go on adventures and enjoy the time with their scouting friends. 49 Scouts - 3 Patrols
