About Our Troop  About Our Troop 

Troop 355 is a Boy Scout troop based in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Troop is run by its Scouts and led by fully trained adult leaders as envisioned by Lord Baden Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts almost 100 years ago.

The Troop is always on the go and while we are doing, our Scouts are learning - while having fun - their duty to God and Country, their duty to others, and lastly, their duty to themselves. Our Scouts and Scouters are expected to live by the 12 points of the Scout Law in their daily lives.

* Our Troop has been recognized by the National Council, Boy Scouts of America as a Quality Unit every year we have been in existence. *

Do you want to know more about Scouting? Perhaps you're new in town and looking for a troop to join? You've come to the right place!

We host an Open House at the beginning of each school year at Sharon United Methodist Church (SUMC) where Scouts give skills demonstrations on activities ranging from outdoor cooking, first aid, pioneering, Pinewood Derby and tent set up. This is a great time for parents and candidates to come and learn about our program.

But, we are always open to welcoming new or transferring Scouts anytime of the year. Come by and sit in on a regular Troop Meeting any Monday at 7pm.

Manned by Scouts, troop parents and friends of Troop 355 - rows of smokers are watched 24/7 for two days. The cooked meat is then hand-picked, chopped, and packed by Troop 355 volunteers over two days.

Troop 355 BBQ is the "BEST IN THE GALAXY" and is our Troop's major fundraiser. The monies raised help support a scout's weekend camping, summer camp and/or high adventure trip cost. We appreciate your patronage.
