Welcome To

Troop 275 Indian Land, SC!

The best and easiest way to begin your Scouting Adventure is to show up at our Troop 275 Indian Land, SC Monday meetings!

At Troop 275, our philosophy is "Preparing For Life" and that is demonstrated through the many activities and values that are done and shown by the members of the troop. We will do this by teaching the scouts listening and teaching skills, survival skills, finance skills, backpacking skills, leadership skills, and first aid skills. By learning all these skills, every scout will have the opportunity to earn the rank of Eagle. We love to camp, go hiking, and spend a lot of time learning about conservation, ecology, safety, leadership, and more. Citizenship is also very important to us, and we work on a variety of community service projects throughout the year as well as participate in parades, flag ceremonies, and other local events.

We always encourage our scouts to do their best, and they earn a lot of awards and advancement recognition as a result. Parents are a huge part of our Troop's success. While we understand that not everyone is able to serve as an adult leader or on the troop committee, perhaps you would be willing to be a merit badge counselor and teach the scouts your skills and talents in a way that benefits us all and helps to make Troop 275 Indian Land, SC a fun place to be.

The Troop collects registration and dues to address fees and pay for the program. 2022 Troop dues = $100 in October 2021 for the annual registration fee paid directly to The Boy Scouts of America and $65 in April 2021 that goes directly to Troop 275, covering Troop costs for the year. For new scouts, there is a one-time fee of $25 that includes the patrol patch, the initial registration fee paid to The Boy Scouts of America, and a Troop T-Shirt. The dues can be paid to the Troop Treasurer by cash, check, or card. Due to the fact that BSA fees are non-refundable, any scout that fails to pay by recharter time, will not be registered. There is also a cost to attending scouts and adults for the monthly camp outs. These costs are variable and will be announced as soon as possible. If anyone is unable to attend after the signup deadline, no refunds will be given.

Just like your baseball or soccer team, there is a uniform required as part of Troop 275. There are two (2) types of uniforms, Class A and Class B. Class A is the more formal uniform whereas the Class B is the less formal uniform. For Class A, we require the official BSA uniform shirt, bolo, pants/shorts, belt, and socks. The BSA hat is not required, but it is encouraged. The approximate cost of the entire Class A uniform and patches is $160 if everything is purchased new. The troop also maintains a 'uniform closet' of donated uniforms to help troop families with the uniform requirements. The troop provides a new scout one set of shoulder loops, a bolo, a troop t-shirt, and a patrol patch. Additional/replacement items are available for purchase either through the troop or online. For the Class B uniform, we require the Troop T-shirt, pants/shorts, belt, and socks. The BSA hat is not required, but it is encouraged.

We meet on almost every Monday night from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM year-round. Other than meetings, we offer group activities like camping, hiking, service projects, and high adventure activities (i.e. backing trips, canoeing trips, sailing trips, etc.). Our meetings are held at Belair United Methodist Church, located at 8095 Shelley Mullis Rd, Fort Mill, SC 29707.
