Troop 77 - DeWitt MI. Chartered since 1933.
The goal of the DeWitt scouting program is to assist the development of responsible and respectful young men. They must be mindful of their role as a citizen of their community. The scouting program is a supervised, boy-run program. It is the role of the supporting adults to advise and guide these young men, not to step in and do the work. Male and female adults alike are always welcome to get involved with the many facets of Troop 77. See the CURRENT TROOP NEEDS page for information on how you or your son can help advance the goals and aspirations of Troop 77.
DeWitt Troop 77 established this website Fall, 2007 to share information regarding troop meetings, events, and campouts. A complete calendar can also be printed off from the calendar page.

The meetings start at 7:00 p.m. and end around 8:30 p.m. Scouts should attend in their Class A uniform complete with appropriate insignia, and neckerchief, with a t-shirt underneath and bring their Boy Scout handbook, a writing utensil, and note paper.
