Most people avoid obstacles, Scouts seek them. They live for any opportunity to display their abilities while learning new skills. Camping is fun, surviving a downpour in the middle of the night is as adventure. Cooking over a campfire is fun, learning which wild berries are edible is survival. Spending a weekend in the woods is fun, breaking camp without leaving a trace is admirable. These are invaluable experiences that can be had in Scouting. These are the life lessons that transform today's Scouts into tomorrow's leaders.
Boy Scouts. Be Prepared - for anything.
Troop 48 is a part of the Capital Area District of the Pacific Harbors Council and a part of the Boy Scouts of America.
We are chartered by First United Methodist Church of Olympia, and meet every Monday from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the basement of FUMCO at 1224 Legion Way SE in Olympia (during July & August we meet at Priest Point Park instead of FUMCO).
We are a boy led/adult guided troop that seeks to help build confident Scouts and future leaders. The Scouts are in charge, the Scouts make the decisions and Scouts choose our activities. It is the goal of the involved adult leaders to make sure that we provide an experience that allows boys to truly understand what it is to be a scout.
