Boy Scouts of America Prepared for Life


Founded in 1917, and continuously chartered since 1940, Troop 251 is currently chartered by the Vicksburg United Methodist Church. Troop 251 is part of the Pathfinder District of the Southern Shores Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

We are 75 years old!! Click here to read more about this historic anniversary.

Troop 251 exists to provide Vicksburg area boys ages 11 thru 17 years of age opportunities to help them grow & mature into good citizens, be active in the community, all while having fun and becoming mentally and physically fit through activities found on the Events Page.

Troop 251 is run by the Scouts! They plan their calendar and present it to the Troop Committee for review. The Scouts elect a Senior Patrol Leader and he, in turn, appoints his Assistant. The Patrols select their own Patrol Leaders and Assistants, and there is a job for every Scout.

Come Join Us !

We meet most every Monday night throughout the year from 7-8:30pm with a pre-meeting activity at 6:45pm.

During the winter months we can be found at the Vicksburg United Methodist Church, and during the warmer months we’ll be at the Friends of Vicksburg Youth cabin located at the dead-end of S. Barton Lake Dr. on Barton Lake… Click HERE for a Google Map link to find it.

Community Service

Being a part of Boy Scouts include a long-time tradition of “community service hours”.  The Scouts have been involved in helping our South County Community Services, Generous Hands and The Vicksburg Historical Society and Historic Village just to name a few.

In addition, Troop 251 holds our monthly “Paper Barn” at a pole-barn type building located on the corner of Division and N. Richardson Streets in Vicksburg.  Newspapers for recycling can be brought from 9am-1pm on the first Saturday of every month.
