Van Alstyne Scouts BSA Troop 44B – Boy Troop
Business Description

Welcome to Troop 44

Character Building Since 1913

Troop 44 has been in existence for 110 years, serving the community of Van Alstyne. It is the 3rd oldest troop in the state of Texas and 5th oldest troop in the nation. Our boys in the Troop range in age from 11 to 18. The First United Methodist Church currently sponsors the Troop, and they have been our sponsor for the longest number of years since we became a Troop. The Troop is a boy-run organization and is under the authority of our patrol leaders' council. We strive to live by the Scout Oath and the 12 points of the Scout Law. We believe in service to God, country, and family. We meet once a week on Tuesdays from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. and try to have at least one outing per month. This outing is usually an event that lets us practice what we have learned from that month's theme. The boys advance in rank at their own pace and have the opportunity to learn about a new hobby or trade by earning merit badges in a particular field of interest. We live by the saying, “Scouting is a game with a purpose."
