Troop 371Auburn, Alabama

Troop 371 is a ministry of Lakeview Baptist Church in Auburn, Alabama.

The Scouting program provides an excellent opportunity for us to mentor young men, teaching them values and leadership skills through the Boy Scout program. These values line up with biblical values that we believe in and want our young men to adopt as their value structure.

Troop 371 is an active Scout Troop serving young men in the Auburn and Opelika area.

Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting, once said that Scouting is a game with a purpose.

At Troop 371, we have fun but the boys learn leadership and character through our activities.

At Troop 371, our goal is to have one unit outing each month. These outings range from multiple day camp-outs to day activities like a hike or community service project.

We have at least one long-term (week long) camp each year which is normally a trip to a Scout Summer Camp. All of our outings from destination to menu are chosen and planned by our boys.

Troop 371 meets weekly during the school year and every other week during the summer. Guests are always welcome to visit but we recommend that you contact us first to insure that there has not been a schedule change.

We meet on Mondays, 7:00 - 8:30 at Lakeview Baptist Church, room N103.

About Troop 371

Troop 371 was founded in 1994. Since that time, hundreds of young men have participated in this troop. We are an active unit with regular outings and activities for our members. We strive to provide a quality program for our Scouts and have been extremely successful in growing boys into quality young men through the Scouting program.

Camp Rainey Mountain 2015

Friday, Jul 10, 2015

On Sunday morning, June 14th, 18 scouts and 5 adults departed for the north Georgia mountains to spend a week at summer camp at Camp Rainey Mountain. CRM is the Northeast Georgia Council's summer camp located just outside the town of Clayton, Georgia.

Of the 18 scouts, most decided to fill their schedules with merit badge classes, but a few took part of the First Year Camper program, aptly named "The New Trail". One scout, Brandon, chose to participate in the "Gold Rush" program for older scouts. Considering the friends he made, we think he had an enjoyable week.
