The finest Troop in the High Desert

Troop 157 is chartered by the Church of the Valley's Presbyterian Men's Club. The troop has been chatered since at least the early 1960's. We had 3 scouts earn their Eagle in 1964. Current council records only go back to 1973 because that is when the council was formed. I have heard rumors that the troop was chartered in the late 50's but have not been able to find any records to verify that. If anyone has any information about the troop prior to 1964 please e-mail me and fill me in.

We presently have 4 patrols and a Venture Team. Our specialty is SCOUTING. Our senior youth leaders have all been to Buckskin. One has served on Buckskin staff, two have completed Foxfire and at least one is scheduled for Buckskin Staff next year. In the past two years, five of our Scouts have earned the rank of Eagle.
