the color scheme established for the subdivision.

BOY SCOUT TROOP 838
Troop 838 is a small pack located near Hwy 6 and West Road at the Crossbridges
Church. We are between the Copperfield and Aberdeen neighborhoods. Being
a smaller troop allows us to be flexible and address the needs of our scouts more
nimbly. We currently have boys from ages 11 to 17 within our group working
to make Eagle. We try to camp monthly, with a wide variety of locations on our
agenda. The different locations are chosen by the senior boys to more directly
meet our training needs and to keep expenses low. In fact, we have some of the
lowest expenses in the area. Our adult leaders are all experienced with years
of scouting under their belt per individual. We also work closely with several
local packs of cub scouts and participate in civic duties around the area as well.
Please contact us at TROOP838CYPRESS.ORG or 414-331-3321.
Troop 1865 runs a diverse program of outdoor and service activities,
with events selected by the scouts themselves. We meet Mondays at 6:30
PM, at the Copperfield HOA building on Willow River and Hwy 6, behind
Labay. We’ve gone backpacking through the National Forest, rappelling
off Enchanted Rock, Survival camping, boating, canoeing and anything
else the scouts can dream up. We do high-adventure camping at
Philmont and Seabase. Our advancement program has enabled scout to
achieve the coveted rank of Eagle Scout at 10 times the national average
rate. We see scouting as a practice run on adult life. Scouts learn about
leadership and teamwork through having to work together in the field.
We learn about responsibility through fund-raising activities that have
allowed the entire troop to pay for their own summer camp each year.
