Troop 1 invites boys ages 10-17 to join us any Monday evening during the school year at 7:00pm at the Ballston Spa United Methodist Church for a meeting and to find out what Scouting is all about.  Enter through the door behind the church into the basement (park in the rear lot).  Meetings are held downstairs in the Fellowship Room.  The entrance is at the rear of the church.

In 2013, Troop 1 turned 100!

Troop 1 is one of the longest continuously chartered troops in the nation; chartered out of the Ballston Spa United Methodist Church since 1913.  This means we've had more FUN than anyone else!
