Joining the Troop

Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 783 in Rolling Hills Estates, California. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your future in Troop 783.

Please note that Troop 783 caps our membership at 100 scouts. We generally accept applications for new scouts and transfers from September 1st through mid-November of each year. We usually fill all available spots each year.

There will be 3 designated meetings in the fall for scouts and parents to see our new scout presentation. Each potential scout and his parent is expected to visit a troop meeting before making an application. Application packets are distributed during this troop visit. Scout and parents are encouraged to come to a second or third meeting to be around and get the feel of the troop and the meetings.

The BSA Joining Requirements require a boy to be an Arrow of Light recipient OR in Grade 6 or higher OR 11 years of age to be eligible to join a Boy Scout Troop
