Troop 870 Clear Lake, TX

Troop 870 is a boy-led troop that develops young men into accountable leaders by promoting and encouraging service, citizenship, and character development while having lots of fun.  The Troop is chartered by University Baptist Church and is in the San Jacinto District of the Sam Houston Area Council. Troop Meetings are held at University Baptist Church every Monday night at 7pm. We love visitors!! If you are interested in visiting our troop, please e-mail the Scoutmaster to coordinate a visit.

At Troop 870, the Scouts experience multiple aspects of scouting by going camping, canoeing, hiking and many other outdoor activities. All our scouts are also actively involved in team activities with many opportunities for leadership in the troop.

While we highly encourage advancement, advancement and earning merit badges are something the Scouts choose to do at their own pace while having fun and learning something new in the process. This philosophy has worked very well with many of our scouts attaining the rank of Eagle Scout.

We are a medium sized troop that consist of approximately 50 scouts.
All new scouts are assigned to active patrols consisting of scouts of various ranks and ages. They will be ready to learn from other scouts in their patrol and jump right into planned activities. Troop 870 offers a campout nearly every month of the year.
