Troop 513 is part of Three Rivers District in Northern Star Council, sponsored by Peace Lutheran Church in Coon Rapids, serving boys since the 1960's. We practice a policy of "Safe Haven", meaning that bullying and hazing are not allowed.
We meet Monday evenings from 7:00-8:00pm at Peace Lutheran. Our troop consists of 3 boy-lead patrols who have the opportunity to camp 20 days and nights each year; this does not include High Adventure treks.
Older boys also have the opportunity to experience High Adventure treks each summer. Past troop treks include Philmont Scout Ranch, Climbing Mount Baker, Florida Sea Base, and Sea Kayaking Lake Superior & the Apostle Islands. Our treks are selected by those boys in our troop meeting minimum age requirement of these treks.
Troop 513 is a medium sized troop with about 30 registered scouts. We believe making room for extra-curricular activities such as band or athletics lead to a balanced development of our young men. Multiple Eagle Scouts from 513 have also earn varsity and academic letters demonstrating both growth opportunies can co-exist.
