About the Troop

Boy Scouts of America Troop #347 was founded in 1939 when a need for a local Boy Scout troop in the Village of Tontogany was realized.  Over the years, Troop #347 has grown in membership, leadership and accomplishment.  Today, the Troop meets every Monday night (with the exception of the first Monday of every month) at 7:00 PM, September through July.  We currently meet at the Otsego Park Shelter House, located on the ground of the scenic Otsego Park, run by the Wood County Park District, on the corner of State Route 235 and State Route 65.  Our camping activities during these months include: a spring, fall and winter district camporees; a week-long summer camp held at area Scout camps or at a Troop-run location; a father-son canoe trip; Camp Alaska winter survival experience and many other exciting and adventurous activities.  The Troop also plans high adventure activities every other summer as an alternative to summer camp for older youth.  Troop members have been to both Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico and to the Florida Sea Base in the Florida Keys.

The Troop also assists the local community by offering a village recycling program and other community service activities, through both volunteered work and Eagle Scout service projects.  We also perform service activities for the Wood County Park District and hold activities with our chartering organization, the Washington Township Volunteer Fire Department.

Troop #347 is a proud member of Wood District, Erie Shores Council, Boy Scouts of America.  Our hope is that we can provide a positive experience of leadership, outdoors and moral skills to the young men of tomorrow.  All boys ages 11 (or in 5th grade) to 17 are welcome to join.

If you or your child is interested in joining Boy Scouts and would like to know more about the troop and what we do please e-mail any of the Scoutmasters here.
