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.

Troop Winter Camp, Dec 27-29 - Merit Badge Survey

Posted on Nov 22 2020 - 9:49pm

We are going to run our own Winter Camp at Tellepsen Scout Ranch near Navasota. We have two campsites reserved, so we can run Merit Badge classes in two roofed shelters. The campout will be three days/two nights, December 27-29. We will arrive Sunday morning before 9am and leave Tuesday evening after 5pm.

The plan is two offer at least two Merit Badges per three hour session, and offer two sessions per day for three days.  Sessions will be 9am-Noon and 1pm-4pm. This means each scout should be able to earn at least six Merit Badges, and Merit Badge Counselors should only have to be in camp for approximately 4 hours.

Tellepsen has hot showers and large camp sites.  We will be doing our own cooking, so we will run this like a monthly weekend campout.  If any scouts want to earn cooking credit for merit badges or rank advancement they can do that. Parents and ASMs will pick up the slack on meals.

Since this is a two night campout, we do not need the Physician signed medical forms (Part C). However we do need a current medical form.

Here is the link to the Merit Badge survey for campers. We should be able to offer at least twelve different merit badges. You rate each merit badge from 3 (I need this) to 1 (I'm interested). The form is not tightly controlled but please restrict your self to rating your top 9 merit badges, each scout rates three 3s, three 2s, and three 1s. There is no restriction on class sizes so you don't have to be the first to register! If we offer a class then all the attending scouts will be able to take it. There is also no restriction on attendance, we could easily handle both troops. Respond soon - but if you have no intention of attending the camp please don't bother to fill out the survey.
