Troops 390/7390 are sponsored by Faith Lutheran Church and Troop 390 for boys was originally chartered in 1963. Troop 7390 for girls was chartered in 2018 and started with 5 girls. We are members of the Great Trail Council - Soaring Eagle District and are based in Fairlawn, Ohio. The Troops provide a wide range of activities for today's scouts, including camping, cooking, swimming, boating, hiking, learning about nature, science and hobbies. The Scouts learn leadership by selecting the troop activities, organizing and planning the events, and then leading the events. The Scoutmasters, Troop Committee members, and adult leaders provide supervision and guidance. Parent participation (including both moms and dads) is highly encouraged.
The troops are very active. We have regular camping and outdoor activities, with outings every month. Weekend campouts, hikes, games, summer camp, the Klondike Derby, white water rafting and community service are popular with the Scouts.
The older Scouts regularly go on "High Adventure Trips" including canoeing trips and backpacking trips. Some of the high adventure trips include Philmont Scout Reservation, High Knoll Trail, Northern Tier, and Sea Base. Part of rank advancement is serving the community by performing service projects. The Scouts regularly participate in numerous activities around the area.
Troop meetings include rank advancement activities like first aid, knot-tying, camping skills, and physical fitness. In addition, the older Scouts regularly participate in merit badge classes that are required for the advanced ranks of Star, Life, and Eagle. We meet year round at Faith Lutheran Church on Tuesday evenings. Feel free to stop by if you are interested in joining.
