Troop 78 is active year-round, and we try to go one at least one major event for our Scouts every month. Our Troop meetings are normally on Tuesdays at 7 PM at the Scout huts on the Air Force Academy along Community Center Drive.
Anyone can join Troop 78; no military affiliation is needed. Those wishing to visit the Troop, should contact the Scoutmaster or Committee Chair for instructions. We meet in the interior part of the Base where a Department of Defense identification card, visitor pass, or escort is needed.
In addition to Troop events, Scouts participate in other activities within their Patrols. Each Patrol is a team of about 8 Scouts varying in age such that the boys have many leadership development and advancement opportunities as they mature. Our engaging program is focused on outdoor adventure (camping, hiking, backpacking, etc.), as well as science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Troop 78 has great scouts and great leaders, which results in a lot of fun at every event!
