Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 993!

Boy Scout Troop 993 is part of the Sam Houston Area Council, Mustang District, in West Houston sponsored by Ashford United Methodist Church. Troop 993 is a boy-led troop that is mentored and supervised by adult volunteer leaders. Parents are a very integral part of our troop program. It is through their participation as ASMs and Troop Committee members that we can provide a safe, interesting and varied program. Boys ages 11 - 17 are invited to join our troop. We meet every Monday evening at 7:30 PM at the Scout building behind the Church located at 2201 S. Dairy Ashford Rd, between Westheimer & Whitington.

Hershey Park Hikes

Posted on May 24 2015 - 9:35pm

The next hike is on Sunday May 31st at 3pm - backpackers are encouraged to bring packs with some weight - 20 lbs for smaller scouts and 40 lbs for bigger scouts.  All scouts participating in the Endurance and Into to Backing programs are encouraged to attend as many hikes as possible.

Check the calendar for the hikes - not all weekends will work due to conflicting events.  The plan is to start will probably a 1 hour hiking session - but build mileage and add backpacks with up to 30 lbs. weight towards the end.  We leave for BTSR on July 11 - and the week before that is the 4th of July.

It is critical to purchase good hiking boots and bring water to each hike!  Here is a good website for hiking gear: https://www.hikerdirect.com.  REI is also a great place to get stuff.

Scout Hut Refurbishing

Posted on May 24 2015 - 9:34pm

Quick upate on Scout Hut Refurbishment.  After a few successful planning meetings - we are now working closing with the Girl Scouts to get quotes for a variety of repairs that will be prioritized.  We are also now considering plans to raise more capital as it appears to do what we want to do will take more.  But, we are off to a great start.

The #1 priority is to have the Scout Hut foundation and substructure repaired and leveled.  The contractor has been selected and work is schedule to occur on June 11th.  Planning for other modifications are also in progress.

Thanks to the Scout Hut Committee:  Jane Gasdaska, Janet Lovelady (both Girl Scout leaders), Arun Duggal; Curtis and Genevieve Rowland, Scoop Carlile, Derick Smith, Paul Babasick and Mike Culligan
