Welcome from Troop 65

Established in 1943, Troop 65 of Mt. Lebanon, PA offers opportunities for boys ages 11-17 to experience the outdoors, learn outdoor skills, provide community service and grow in leadership through a structured advancement program. We strive to be a scout-run, scout-led organization as much as possible.  All new scouts are welcome; no previous scouting experience is required.  Troop 65 serves scouts from various public and private schools in and around the Mt. Lebanon area. We typically have about 40-45 registered boys on our roster. Troop meetings are held at Sunset Hills Presbyterian Church in Crystall Hall on Thursday from 7:30 pm-  9:00 pm.  While access to many parts of our website is granted only to members of our troop (by login), we would be happy to hear from any interested families (Menu-Contact Us).

Some highlights of our program include camping, backpacking, kayaking, Klondike Derby, Adopt-a-Highway, broomball and summer camp. Our Summer camp has followed a pratice of exploring a new scout camp every two years.  The last six years we have visited Heritage Reservation, Seph Mack and Beaumont Scout Reservation. For 2018 & 2019, we are planning to attend Camp Raven Knob in North Carolina. We also regularly have boys participate in BSA sponsored high adventure trips to National Jamboree-West Virginia, Philmont-New Mexico, Seabase-Florida and Northern Tier- Minnesota/Canada. Over one hundred Troop 65 scouts have attained Eagle rank (Menu-Eagle's Nest).

For the last six years, we've earned Gold level for Journey to Excellence.

Troop 65 desires to be welcoming and encouraging, so our Scouts flourish in their pursuits.  For this to occur, it is essential for our parents to volunteer, to support the Scouts in their endeavors.  Our scouts value and rely on your involvement, everyone benefits from your contribution of time, and our Troop is stronger as a result.
