About

Welcome to Troop 673! We are an active Troop sponsored by the Methodist Men’s Club of the Great Falls United Methodist Church. Our Troop has been serving the community for over 45 years. We have an exciting and challenging outdoor program - our troop motto is “Weather or Not…” as we are on the go – No Matter the Weather!


Troop 673 is a scout-run troop, scouts plan and run all troop meetings and activities. In keeping with the spirit of scouting, scouts learn through doing. Our scouts are given the opportunity to lead, develop new skills, and assume responsibilities while teaching other scouts. Scouts choose troop activities and plan how to do them, perhaps making mistakes along the way but learning from the process all the while. Troop 673's dedicated adult leadership is ever subtly present, ready to provide guidance and ensure safety when needed - "the support staff" of Troop 673 scouts who run the show.


Thank you for visiting us! We are happy to have you join our troop – but encourage visits to other area troops to find the best fit. We deeply believe our scout run program with its focus on backpacking, high adventure and community service is hard to beat!
