Welcome to Troop 525. The New Providence Civitan Club has been our chartering organization since 1953.

Our troop is similar to others in organization and function and we follow the guidelines established by the Boy Scouts of America. It is scout-led with the scouts determining the activities and level of participation. Adult leaders provide guidance to the scouts and the Troop Committee determines general direction and accomplishes many of the administrative requirements.

Troop 525 is active and we try to have at least one activity per month. We average more than 20 camping nights each year. Recurring major activities include a trip to Shiloh Military Battlefield (April), Boxwell Scout resident camp (June), and canoeing (August).

The troop has had more than 75 scouts attain the rank of Eagle. We encourage all scouts to use that as their goal even though we recognize that only a few will attain it. The adult leaders have a great amount of scouting experience. Many had been scouts in their youth and several are Eagle scouts themselves.

Troop meetings are each Monday from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at the Scout Hut which is located behind Byrns Darden Elementary School (near the intersection of Peachers Mill Road and New Providence Boulevard (US 41A)).

News You Can Use 

Contact Mr Moore or Mr Di Silvio (click on links at left under Troop Leadership) for information on connecting with the troop through the text service. This is only available for members (& parents) of the troop.

Scouts and adult leaders are required to have a completed medical form Form 680-001 (2014 Printing) on file in the troop. These medical forms are only good for one year. Parts A and B are required for routine scouting activities and only require adult signature. Part C is required for activities greater than 72 hours in length (ie, Boxwell) and has the necessary information requiring a medical professional signature.

It would be worthwhile to download the medical form in a PDF version, complete the basic information and then save it until a doctor visit when it can be printed with all the necessary medical history information already completed. See the Scout Forms link in the left margin.
