About Our Troop
We uphold the vision of the Boys Scouts of America:
“Prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.”
Troop 578’s goal for every Scout is that they have the tools and skills necessary to live their life as adults with integrity, and who will be exemplary citizens within their communities.
Troop 578 has a legacy of outstanding leadership development, quality program, high participation, strong retention, and a sense of family that gives our scouts the support they need to succeed in all things.
The Troop meets on Tuesday evenings at Basilica of St. Mary Star of the Sea Church from 6:00 until 7:00. We meet in the back off of Windsor Ln. You will see a parking lot west of Windsor Ln. go into the driveway past the parking lot. You will then see a open gate to your right. Walk down the pathway to the building on your right “two story” we meet upstairs. Interested Scouts, Webelos and Parents are invited to visit the troop. To contact the Troop, you can send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 559-362-6084 or 305-744-3350 please leave a message or text.
Troop 578 is the oldest and newest Scout Troop in Key West, and has been an active organization for community service, youth activity and leader development. Even though we are a small troop in a small town, we take part in big adventures and activities, and we have high participation rate for our membership.
Each summer the Scouts of Troop 578 spend a week camping. Here we work on scout skills, merit badges, cooking, camping and plenty of fun, outdoor activities. Every other year is High Adventure time, with Jamboree or other activity.
