Troop 51 is a youth led Troop. The goal of Troop 51 is to do our best to uphold the traditions and spirit of Scouting as expressed in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. All members, both youth and adult, participate regardless of race, religious beliefs, physical or mental disability, or financial circumstances. In addition, Troop 51 exists to provide service to: our charter organization, Schertz United Methodist Church; our community, the City of Schertz; and our fellow Americans. The troop was founded in 1951 and in January 2012 celebrated its 60th anniversary.


Troop meetings are held each Wednesday, except for holidays, at 7:00 p.m. at the Schertz United Methodist Church or such place as may be designated by agreement of the Troop.

Youth Membership

A boy who is 11 years old, or has completed the fifth grade or has earned the Arrow of Light and is at least 10 years old, but is not yet 18 years old, is eligible for membership regardless of race, religious beliefs, physical or mental disability, or financial circumstances. Each boy, and his parents or legal guardians, shall fill out an application for membership (along with a BSA physical) and submit the application and appropriate fee to the adult responsible for the official records of Troop 51. In cases of financial hardship, the fees may be waived in return for service to the Troop. Service to the Troop will be a mutually agreed upon task(s) designated by the youth and Troop Committee for the benefit of the Troop. This allows each boy to “pay his way.”

Youth Membership Fees

The membership fee will be the amount set by the national office of The Boy Scouts of America. In addition, there will be a $10.00 per month fee for dues, or $120.00 per year. The dues help pay for scout advancement awards, camping sites and merit badges. The same hardship rules apply for dues.
