Troop 162 has been an active troop since 1945, and it is has seen many Scouts come and go, 109 of them Eagle Scouts. But 162 isn’t about focusing on advancement. Our focus is on having fun. We have slept on an 888-foot, 45,000-ton battleship, sold 625 Christmas trees in less than three weeks, and worked together to lift our entire troop over a 16-foot wall using the help of only one other adult, and all in the space of just 4 months. 162 is unique in its ability to work as a team and to have fun. Join 162, and you are absolutely guaranteed to have a good time!
