Indian Land, SC
PREPARED. FOR LIFE.
What is scouting?
Scouting is a program that prepares you for life in multiple ways. Scouts BSA (formerly known as Boy Scouts of America) is a program for youth ages 10-17 years old (5th - 12th grade). It is a place where both boys and girls can experience adventures in the great outdoors. They will learn about service through helping out in their community, increase their leadership skills while taking on roles within their troop, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
Why should I choose Troop 275G?

We participate in a wide variety of projects to help others and to give our youth a foundation in citizenship and service. As a scout in Troop 275G Indian Land, SC, your child will be part of a program based on character, family, and fun!

We do not charge any monthly dues. There is an annual fee that you pay to the council when you register, that is currently $80 per Scout. For new Scouts, there is a one-time fee of $25. The dues can be paid to the Troop Treasurer by cash, check, or card. Due to the fact that BSA fees are non-refundable, any scout that fails to pay by recharter time, will not be registered. Uniforms (Both Class A and B) and Scoutbooks are required, and those can be purchased through the Scout Shop and/or your Scoutmaster. There is also a cost to attend the monthly camp outs. These costs are variable and will be announced in advance as each trip is planned. If anyone is unable to attend after the signup deadline, no refunds will be given.
In order to represent the pride of being a Scout, there is a uniform required as part of Troop 275G. There are two (2) types of uniforms, Class A and Class B. Class A is the more formal uniform, whereas the Class B is the less formal uniform. For Class A, we require the official Scouts BSA uniform shirt, pants/shorts/skort, shoulder loops, and belt. The Scouts BSA hat is not required, but it is encouraged. The approximate cost of the entire Class A uniform and patches is $160 if everything is purchased new. You can purchase “uniform appropriate” pants through Amazon (ask the Scoutmaster for the link). The troop also maintains a 'uniform closet' of donated uniforms to help troop families with the uniform requirements. The troop provides a new scout their patrol patch. Additional/replacement items are available for purchase either through the troop or online. For the Class B uniform, we require the Troop T-shirt, pants/shorts/skort, and belt. The BSA hat is not required, but it is encouraged. You can purchase the Class B shirt from your Scoutmaster.
On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
