Boy Scouts of America Prepared for Life


Founded in 1917, and continuously chartered since 1940, Troop 251 is currently chartered by the VFW Post 5855. Troop 251 is part of the Pathfinder District of the Southern Shores Field Service Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

Troop 251 exists to provide Vicksburg area boys and girls 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.

We celebrated being continuously chartered for 75 years (and a grand total of almost 100 years) in 2015!! Click here to read more about this historic anniversary.

Come Join Us !

Want to join us?  We hope you do!  The best way to start is to just SHOW UP to a Troop meeting.  We meet almost every week throughout the year from 7-8:30pm.  Ask anyone wearing a Scout uniform to direct you to the Scoutmaster.

During the winter months (November thru February) we meet on Thursday nights at our Charter Organization, the VFW Post 5855, and during the warmer months (March thru October), on Monday nights, we’ll be at the Friends of Vicksburg Youth cabin at Camp Char Le Maude located at the dead-end of S. Barton Lake Dr. on the shores of Barton Lake… Click HERE for a Google Map link to find Camp Char Le Maude.

Get to Know Us!

Troop 251 actually consists of 2 Troops… a boy and a girl Troop who each hold their Troop Meetings at the same time/place and often combine their other activities together also. 

Troop 251 is run by the Scouts! Both our Boy Troop and our Girl Troop each plan their calendar with the guidance of their adult leaders.  The Scouts, along with their Scoutmaster’s guidance, elect a Senior Patrol Leader who, in turn, appoints the Assistant Senior Patrol Leader. Each Patrol within both Troops select their own Patrol Leaders and Assistants.  There are many other positions available within both Troops, so there is a role to play for every Scout.
