     Troop 264 is an active troop, planning and participating in outdoor activities such as camping at least once a month. There are also various community service projects, some repeated, some one time only, throughout the year that scouts can be a part of, some of which can count for Student Service Learning (SSL) hours in the Montgomery County Schools and elsewhere.

The troop consists of approximately 60 scouts ranging in age from 11 to 17 years old (6th to 12th grade). The pinnacle of the Scouting experience for the boys is to make Eagle scout. Scouts work on meeting their requirements at their own pace with help from older scouts and adult leaders. Troop 264 is very fortunate to have a large number of adults that assist in many different ways, as trained leaders, merit badge counselors, arranging outings, activities, fundraising, etc. (thanks, parents!). There are many ways to help.

We Have Fun! Troop outings may include (but are not limited to) Civil War battlefield hikes, canoeing, backpacking, museum and historic site visits, camping and caving. Older scouts (with proper training, of course) are eligible to participate in High Adventure outings such as whitewater rafting, Seabase in Florida and the Bahamas (scuba and sailing), Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico (backpacking), or Northern Tier in Minnesota (wilderness canoeing).

All boys between 11 and 18 are welcome (parents too) to visit or join Troop 264. The troop meets at St. John's Church on MD Route 108 in the center of Olney (just west of MD Route 97 / Georgia Avenue) at 7:30 PM on Monday evenings. Mr. Dennis Bogan is the troop's Scoutmaster.

Younger boys (elementary school) and their parents may want to consider Cub Scouts, which can provide a strong and fun foundation for moving up to Boy Scouts in just a few years. However, boys do not have to be Cub Scouts before they can join Boy Scouts.
