TROOP 647

We have been an important part of the Mercer Island community since January 1969. Our troop is one of four Boy Scouts of America (BSA) troops on the island.

Our priorities include: Achieving the requirements for rank advancement, going on exciting outdoor excursions, doing our part through community service projects, annual participation in one of the BSA’s High Adventure Camps, and having a lot of fun together!

We meet every Monday night during the school year, except for holidays and breaks. Come join us!

ABOUT

Troop 647 is a youth organization chartered by the Boy Scouts of America and located on Mercer Island, Washington, USA. Our sponsor is Mercer Island's Redeemer Lutheran Church, although there is no requirement to belong to this church in order to join our troop. 

 

​In fact every boy, age 11-17, is welcome to join our troop. Boys who have earned their Webelos Arrow of Light may join before the age of 11.

 

​We are committed to being an open, inclusive and welcoming organization for all boys and families who are interested in the BSA’s mission to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.

 

​We are excited the BSA is open to both boys and girls. Now, even more youth will have access to the character development and values-based leadership that Scouting promises. It is important to understand these changes did not make Troop 647 coed (or any other BSA troop). The BSA still has boys in their own dens and troops and girls in their own dens and troops. Mercer Island 678 is our community’s BSA troop for girls and 647 remains a BSA troop for boys.
