Welcome to the homepage for Boy Scout Troop 225 !

Membership in the Troop is available to boys who have earned the Arrow of Light Award and are at least 10 years old or have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10, or who are 11, but not yet 18 years old.
Troop 225 is committed to local youth and to the welfare of our community.

This is accomplished by providing our scouts with the ability to enjoy activities generally not available outside of scouting.
