About Scouts BSA Troop 36
Welcome to the official page of Scouts BSA Troop 36, a community resource offered by Connecticut Korean Presbyterian Church. We are a vibrant and inclusive scouting troop based in the Saugatuck Congregational Church. Our troop is dedicated to providing a nurturing environment for youth ages 11 to 17 to develop important life skills, leadership abilities, and a strong sense of community.
The Saugatuck Congregational Church
The Saugatuck Congregational Church has been serving the Westport, Connecticut community since its establishment in 1832. As one of the oldest congregations in the area, our church holds a rich history and plays an integral role in fostering faith and beliefs within the community. We are committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment where individuals of all backgrounds can find spiritual support, engage in meaningful worship, and participate in various community programs.
Scouts BSA is the flagship program of the Boy Scouts of America, offering young people the opportunity to participate in a range of activities designed to promote character development, personal fitness, and outdoor skills. Troop 36 is proud to be affiliated with Scouts BSA and provides an engaging and supportive environment for scouts to thrive. With a focus on leadership, adventure, and community service, our troop empowers young individuals to become confident and responsible citizens.
Merit badges are at the core of the Scouts BSA program and allow scouts to explore various fields of interest while developing valuable skills. Troop 36 offers an extensive range of merit badges, encompassing areas such as camping, citizenship, first aid, sustainability, and many more. Our dedicated team of trained adult leaders and merit badge counselors ensure scouts receive the guidance and support needed to succeed in earning these badges.
At Scouts BSA Troop 36, we believe in the importance of leadership development for our youth. Through practical hands-on experiences, scouts have the opportunity to lead their peers, plan and organize events, and develop their communication and decision-making skills. These experiences not only benefit scouts during their time in scouting but also serve as building blocks for their future success in various aspects of life.
