If you're new to Scouts and thinking about joining the program, or are currently a Cub Scout looking for a troop to join, we hope that you'll consider Troop 648.  Scouting is a great program, offering a wide range of opportunities for boys ages 11 - 17.  Boy Scout troops vary widely in size, activities, and programs.  When looking for a troop to join, it's important to make sure you have a "good fit" – that is, its leaders, its activities, and overall "feel" are a good match. Troop 648 sets its activities to best meet both the immediate and long term needs of our Scouts. 

We strive to maintain a balanced program of activities throughout the year to challenge the Scouts both mentally and physically, emphasizing leadership and character development in the Scouting tradition. Our activities during the past years serve as examples of the program you can expect from Troop 648 in the years ahead (for a list of past activities, click on the “About Us” link in the menu on the left).

Scouting is far more than camping, hiking, and games. Scouting is also about character, values, and community service. As a Boy-led troop, Troop 648 emphasizes the values embodied in the Scout Outh and Law and our Scouts regularly participate in a wide range of community support activities.

We hope that Troop 648 will be part of your Scouting experience. Should you have any questions, or would like to arrange a visit to one of our troop meetings, please use the “Contact Us” link in the menu on the left.

Yours in Scouting,

Reza Bashar, Scoutmaster

Hello Troop 648,
Attached is the activity consent form for this service project that must be signed by your parent.  It will be due at the event, YOU CANNOT PARTICIPATE WITH OUT THE FORM.
This is Justin Rader (Bat's Patrol Leader) informing you about a Service project on April 22nd from 5 to 6:30PM.  It will be a trail cleanup on the NightHawk Trail/ Hilltop Park.  The entrance is located right at Hilltop Park.  Please bring gloves and trash bags.  I recommend that the younger scouts come for service hours that could go towards certain rank requirements and this also applies towards the older scouts who may still need service hours.  Please meet in front of the Recreation Center, where we usually have Troop meetings.  Make sure to get there at 5PM sharp.  If you have any questions E-mail me at jayhawkrifle@gmail.com.
Justin Rader
