Thank you for your interest in Boy Scout Troop 873, chartered by Ferndale United Methodist Church.

Our troop has been in place for more than 50 years providing such opportunities to youth as they develop from boys to young men.  'Boy lead, but leader minded' is one of our core philosophies and has kept us involved as one of the top troops in our local area.  We can only encourage you and your Scout to stop by and visit our unit some night to see how a typical meeting is conducted. 
Scouting is not all just games and outdoor experiences, but also stresses citizenship, leadership, and skills development both physically and mentally.  Our boy and adult leadership stress all aspects of the program and challenges each boy to his personal level for the best possible Scouting experiences.  That's what makes us unique in the area and our Scouts so successful; the ability to have an active indoor and outdoor program for ALL levels of Scouts as ONE unit.  This is not a collection of various aged boys all doing their own thing; this is a collective group that goes out once a month throughout the year, as well as conducts instructional training at every meeting. It's traditional Scouting values with a twist of technology thrown in; and the boys wouldn't want it any other way......or they'd work to change the plan for the next year!

So we hope to see you soon at one of our meetings. No need to let us know in advance, please just stop by. However, if you would like to let us know or need any other information that is not found here about Troop 873, simply contact us (

We're not the perfect Troop for everyone......but we do have a lot of fun with those that decide we are.
