Boy Scout Troop 32
State College Presbyterian Church first chartered Scouts BSA boys Troop 32 in 1914, making it the oldest continuously chartered Scouts BSA Troop for boys in State College. In 2019, the Church chartered Scouts BSA girls Troop 32, one of the first all-girls troops in the United States.
Troop 32 boys and girls troops are Scout-led, meaning that the Scouts plan and run the program, developing their leadership, planning, communication and interpersonal skills along the way. They are assisted in this effort by a large, dedicated group of adult Scoutmasters, supported by a Troop Committee. The troops participate in monthly camping trips, an annual week-long summer camp, and high adventure trips every other year.
Recent high adventure trips have included:
Troop 32 is proud to have honored more than 175 Scouts with the rank of Eagle, the highest award in Scouting. Several Scouts are currently working on their last requirements toward Eagle. Parents are encouraged to participate in one of numerous volunteer opportunities. The Troop also sponsors several family trips each year with the entire family encouraged to attend.
