Troop 402 is filled with great scouts, encouraging leaders, and awesome adventures. We are located in the town of Ellijay, in beautiful Gilmer County, Georgia. We are very lucky in that we live in scouting paradise in the southern Appalachian Mountains. We are also grateful to live in a community that is very supportive of the scouting movement.
Troop 402 meets every Monday night at 6:30 at the Gilmer County Scout Hut located on McCutchen Street in downtown Ellijay. Our Chartered Organization is the United Methodist Church, but boys of all faiths are welcome into the troop.
Boy Scouts is for boys between the ages of 11 and 17, or be 10 and completed the 5th grade, or be 10 and received the Arrow of Light Award. It is not necessary for you to have been a Cub Scout or to have completed the Cub Scout program.
The scouts in Troop 402 are very adventurous. We plan and go on outings that include hiking, backpacking, camping, canoeing, camporee, summer camp, merit badge colleges, and many other adventures in many places each year. The only thing that holds us back is our own imagination. If there is an adventure out there… we will find it... we will take part in it... we will have fun doing it...
Join Troop 402 and join the adventure!!!
