​Welcome to Troop 157!   We have been blessed with a great area for scouting activities-- crystal clear springs for canoeing and exploring, abundant state parks for camping, and a great Scout camp in nearby DeFuniak Springs, the Spanish Trail Scout Reservation.

        ​Our Troop has a very active outdoor program. We go camping once a month - rain, cold, or heat (view troop calendar) and we firmly believe in "Scouts leading Scouts”. For a glimpse at our recent events, please check out our Facebook page.

        Have you decided to join our amazing Troop and now what? Here is a checklist of things to get done over the next couple of weeks. This does not have to be done in any certain order but it will help you turn in all of the needed paperwork, meet most of the adult leaders and get you connected. Excited?

        ​​Our leaders believe that the BSA Scouting program is the greatest leadership experience for our young scouts to learn, experience, and grow---developing strong values and a solid core foundations laid out in our Scout Oath and Law. So, if this is what you want, click through our web site or visit us on Facebook to learn more. And come join us at one of our meetings! We look forward to you joining our Scouting Adventure!
