About Us

Troop 25 is a boy-led troop with an active outdoor program.  It is the adults’ goal to provide a safe, positive, and fun environment for boys to learn new skills and grow in leadership.

Troop 25’s Chartered Organization is Custer Road United Methodist Church of Plano, Texas.  For over 30 years, the troop has been active in the community, had monthly camp outs to various locations and attended summer camp yearly both in the state of Texas and other parts of the United States.

The Troop’s goal is to develop leaders in a safe environment where the boys can learn new skills and visit new places while enjoying fulfilling and enjoyable experiences.

Parents:                       Parents are expected to take an active role in their sons scouting years and participate in troop activities by volunteering and supporting the troop.   There are many opportunities for involvement.  You can work 1 hour a week or more, but you will be called upon to assist at some time. Parents are always welcome on all campouts and are strongly encouraged to be involved and participate.
