About Boy Scouts
The American Association of Singapore is proud to charter for Troop 07 of the Boy Scouts of America. Troop 07 meets Tuesday evenings at the Singapore American School. Our boys enjoy outings around South Asia several times a year as well as our annual “summer camp” during Spring Break.Through Scouting, Scouts learn life skills such as leadership, responsibility and self-confidence while having fun. Troop 07 is a boy-led unit with adult leader direction. Empowering children to be leaders is the core of all Scouting.
Check out the latest troop activities at: www.bsatroop07.org
Open to all male US Citizens and males of other nationalities attending international schools, aged 11-18. Older males and females may join as adult volunteers.
About Cub Scouts
The American Association is also proud to charter Cub Scout Pack 3017. This pack meets every six to eight weeks at the Singapore American School, but includes boys from many of the international schools in Singapore as members. Dens (smaller groups of 6-8 boys) meet regularly to learn Scouting ways and fulfill badge and rank requirements.
Registration is open to all boys in Grades 1 through 5 to any boys of the same age attending any school in Singapore. For more information, email SGPack3017@gmail.com.
