Prospective Scouts and Parents,
Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 673. We are an active Troop that is
sponsored by the Methodist Men’s Club of the Great Falls United
Methodist Church. Our Troop has been serving the community for over
40 years. We have an exciting and challenging outdoor program. Our
troop motto is “Weather or not…” and we are on
the go – no matter the weather.
Troop 673 is a boy-run troop – meaning, the boys plan and
run the meetings and activities. In the true spirit of scouting
the boys learn through doing. The boys are given the opportunity
to lead, develop new skills, and assume responsibilities. Boys teach
other boys. Boys plan which of their activities to do and how to
do them. Boys make mistakes, but they learn from the process. Our
dedicated adult leadership is there to provide guidance and insure
safety – but the boys do run the show.
Community Service is how we put the Scout Oath and Law into action.
Troop 673 sponsors River Bend Road and removes trash and debris
several times a year. We collected over 1200 pounds of food for
the homeless as part of the Scouting for Food Program during the
Recent Eagle Scout Service projects include projects
at Historic Colvin
Bend Park, Great
Falls National Park and the Great Falls Methodist Church.
We supplied the color guard
at the Great Falls Independence Day celebration and help out at
many community events throughout the year.
Thank you for visiting us. We’d be happy to have you join
our troop – but encourage you to visit other troops in the
area. We think our boy run program with its focus on backpacking,
high adventure and community service is hard to beat!
We hope you’ll join us!
