Journey to Excellence Quality Unit


Troop 86 has been actively Scouting for over 85 years!

Weekly Troop/Patrol Meetings

Every Monday, 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. 176 McKinley Avenue, Grosse Pointe Farms, MI 48236 (map)

We meet on every Monday evening, on which the Grosse Pointe Schools have classes. Our meetings are held at the Richard Elementary School. Generally, our sign-up night for the start of the Scouting year is the Monday following Labor Day. The last official meeting of the year is the June Court-of-Honor/Pinic.

Monthly Campouts

In general, we go on a weekend campout every month, except the summer months. During the summer, we have a week-long Summer Camp which we spend at Cole Canoe Base near Alger, Michigan. We camp in the Aspen campsite that Troop 86 has adopted. Summer Camp is generally held the last week of July. All Scouts are eligible for this event. Also during the summer, we have a High Adventure campout that is usually limited to Scouts who are 13 or 14 years old or older, and generally who have attained the rank of First Class.

Service Projects

In addition to weekly meetings and monthly camping activities, Troop 86 Scouts develop a sense of citizenship by participating in special Service Projects throughout the year. These include Eagle Leadership Service Projects that benefit organizations and communities in Southeast Michigan.

Courts of Honor

Troop 86 conducts a Court of Honor quarterly to recognize Scout advancement and awards. The Court of Honor is a public ceremony, and is a chance for the Scouts to be recognized for their achievements. Families and all other interested individuals are encouraged to attend.
