The Boy Scouts of Troop 74, Bushkill Township, would like to welcome you to come and see and experience one of the best and oldest Boy Scout troops in the area.  Our group was founded in 1958 by Marcus Yeakel who is still an active member of Bushkill United Methodist Church.  He had the foresight and vision to realize that Boy Scouts is a great program that instills leadership, moral and family values for our boys in the community to follow.  We feel that we follow the same principles as the church in giving back to the community.

Our boys do community service projects as well as volunteering their time helping serve dinners and assisting with fund raisers for Bushkill U.M.C.  Two Boy Scout Eagle Projects were completed on the property, one being a flag pole area, and the other a reflection garden.

Our group meets every Wednesday evening at 7:00 pm.  We are always encouraging new boys to come and join our group.

The boys can go to a week of summer camp where they can earn merit badges.  This is a boy led troop, so they choose where and what they want to do, with adults offering only guidance and experience.  They visit Battleships and air shows, National Parks, go hiking, canoeing, swimming, skating, spelunking (caving), and rock climbing, to name a few.

Anyone wishing to learn more about Troop 74 and what scouting can offer your children, your family, your church and your community, please go to our troop web site at  The Boy Scouts of Troop 74 have a lot of information on what they do and how they do it.  Check out our "Memories Captured" photo gallery of past events and outings spanning several years and you will see lots of boys and young men enjoying the outdoors and the challenges and opportunities scouting has to offer.  Maybe someday soon all of us will see our picture in the gallery, now wouldn't that be something!!!

For further information please contact Scout Master Richard Cortright at 610-837-8207 (home) or 610-759-5844 (office).
