The oldest continuously chartered troop in Arizona
Originally organized in the heart of Mesa in 1919, Troop 50 has been around for over 100 years.
With recent changes in chartering organizations, Troop 50 has moved from Mesa to Queen Creek, but the legacy continues.
Currently all in-person Scout meetings are postponed. We’re hoping to start meeting in person soon — hopefully starting in July. We do have Zoom meetings, and we’re working with Scouts on what they can do from home during quarantine. Please feel free to contact us with questions — firstname.lastname@example.org

Boys ages 11 (or 10 if you’ve completed the 5th grade) to 18 years old are welcome to join our troop.

Their Scout troop is amazing. They have fantastic youth leadership, wonderful girls who are welcoming to all, and they have a lot of fun Scouting in the outdoors.
There are no co-ed troops in Scouts BSA; instead, there are boy-only troops and there are girl-only troops. Troop 50 is a boy-only troop.
If you have a younger child interested in Scouting, here is a link that can show you any Cub Scout Pack in your area — https://beascout.scouting.org/ The closest Cub Scout Pack to us is Pack 735. They’re a wonderful group and have a lot of fun. They meet at a school near Ironwood and Ocotillo in San Tan Valley, AZ.
Cub Scouts are for children from Kindergarten to 5th grade. Many, but not all, are family packs, which includes both boys and girls.
All are welcome in Scouting.
We’re somewhat experienced accommodating boys with ADHD or who fit somewhere on the autistism spectrum. For other needs, physical limitations, or special situations, we’re happy to sit down with parents/guardians and figure out how to provide a rewarding Scouting experience.
