Welcome Troop 13 Scouts and Friends

Who We Are

Founded in 1937, we are the oldest continuously chartered troop in Gulfstream Council.  We are a scout led troop, and we believe that scouts learn best by doing, even if they make mistakes.  We are also a fully integrated, co-ed troop, welcoming both male and female scouts. 

What We Do

We are an active troop.  At meetings, we play games and learn scout skills.  We also plan for our next outings.  We camp at least once a month during every month during the school year.  On these camp outs, we practice scout skills, like hiking, swimming, backpacking, and canoeing, and sometimes snow skiing, white water rafting, river tubing, and scuba diving (for those who are certified).  During the summers, we go to summer camps, both locally and out of state, usually in the mountains.  Hello cooler weather!  

We believe in service – we seek to give back to our charter organization, Memorial Presbyterian Church,  and our community.   

Come join us!

Normally, we meet every Thursday night at 7pm at Memorial Presbyterian Church on the campus of Palm Beach Atlantic University. 


We have been doing online meetings during Covid lockdown.

New members are always welcome!

1st Troop Meeting- August 12th at Memorial Presbyterian Church

Posted on Aug 1 2021 - 5:46am

We hope that everyone had a great summer.  We wanted to remind you that we will be holding the 1st Troop Meeting of our 2021/2022 year on Thursday, August 12th at 7 pm at the Memorial Presbyterian Church.  It will be good to see everyone after our short break.  Please plan to attend.

WANTED- Den Chiefs for Pack 13

Posted on Aug 1 2021 - 5:41am

We are in the process of helping Pack 13 to get back on its feet again and could use a few spirited scouts to help out as Den Chiefs.  Remember- helping with Cub Scout recruiting now ultimately helps us to recruit for the troop in years to come.  Volunteering as a Den Chief is one of the most important roles that you can play in scouting and also counts for leadership toward Star, LIfe, and Eagle.  Please email johnkrayeski@gmail.com if you are interested.  P.S.- We already have a number of Den Chief recruits for Packs 141, 176 and 756, but could always use a few more in those Packs also.

Scuba Merit Badge/PADI Open Water Scuba Certification Opportunity

Posted on Aug 1 2021 - 5:14am

Due to popular demand, we have put together another Troop 13 Scuba Merit Badge/PADI Open Water Scuba Certification Course.  Our good friend Sandy at https://www.oceanquestscuba.com/ is offering us an amazing ALL-INCLUSIVE scuba certification for only $300 each.  This is a two for one deal so we need to have an equal number of participants overall.  This special price is not just for scouts, but parents and siblings are welcome to participate also.  Please email johnkrayeski@gmail.com right away if you you are interested or have any questions (see FAQs below).  We hope to start the weekly sessions (either before troop meetings or over Zoom) in mid-August and have everyone certified by mid-September so that we can still enjoy the warm water and calm seas before the winter months arrive.  A $100 deposit to cover the course materials is required to get started.

Please email the Advancement team to send us all the paperwork for any items completed by August 26. Please contact us if you have any questions or need any help. Check your scout book to make sure it is up to date and that everything you completed is correct in Scoutbook. If you see something missing please contact us and we can work together on figuring out what is missing. Everything must be figured out and submitted by August 26.
All Summer camp MB completed at La Noche, Rainey Mountain, and Philmont will be automatically entered by the advancement team. Any MB or awards done over the summer that are not from these three camps must be submitted to the advancement team as we do not have access to your personal tendaroo account. We will need the blue cards front and back emailed to us. If you are going to TK this summer, please know that we do not have access to these MB and that we need the Blue cards emailed to us.  Please call us if you have any questions about how to access your tendaroo account.
