Since 1972, Boy Scout Troop 245 on Hilton Head Island has helped thousands of local boys and young men build character, develop leadership and serve their community. Troop 245 accomplished this through fun in the outdoors to include hiking, camping, rock climbing, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, boating, fishing, shooting sports and more. 

These scouts have gone on to become good citizens and leaders in their communities. They bring with them the values of scouting, embodied in the Scout Law, which states “a Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.”

Of the thousands who have enjoyed the scouting experience with Troop 245, more than 100 have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout – arguably the most significant award a young person can earn!

To celebrate this amazing half century of success, Troop 245 will host a special 50th Anniversary Court of Honor from 6 to 8 p.m. June 14 at Honey Horn Plantation – interestingly, the site of their very first Scout Meeting.
