Acting out its mission to reach into the community, Sunset Bible Church agreed to charter Boy Scout Troop #248 in the 2015-2016 year. Sunset’s support of Troop #248 allows the troop to continue its 87-year tradition of teaching Boy Scout values and skills to boys in 6th-12th grade through hiking, camping, and adventurous fun.
Led by long-time Scout Master Dave Matzen, Troop 248 now meets at the Sunset Chapel location at the corner of 44th and Sunset on Monday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Boys 11-17 and their families are welcome any Monday evening!
Troop 248’s November outing includes a family weekend at the old barracks at Fort Flagler. Scouts can explore bunkers, hike, and work on merit badge skills such as cooking and first aid. Come check out how Boy Scouts can enrich, ennoble and engage youth!
