BSA Troop # 641

Welcome !

Welcome to Troop 641!

Troop 641 is located in the beautiful piney woods of the Memorial neighborhood of Houston, TX. Celebrating 65 years of Scouting excellence, Troop 641 is a place where boys (ages 11 - 17 yrs) grow to be young men. Our program is focused on Adventure, Leadership, and Service:

  • Adventure is the outdoor fun that is fundamental to boy scouting: camping, hiking, zip lining, bouldering, climbing, rappelling, boating, shooting, fishing, and cooking. 
  • Leadership is one of the skills that scouting teaches best: boys learn how to organize, motivate, and lead groups of their peers. Younger scouts begin with citizenship and teamwork skills. As they advance in the program, they are given the opportunity to hold “Positions of Responsibility” that increase in complexity as their skills and experience increase.
  • Service is the way we give back to the community, both as individual scouts and as a troop.  We have dozens of service opportunities each year, giving scouts many opportunities to focus on helping others.

If you interested in learning more, we welcome visitors during our weekly troop meetings; we meet at 7 PM in the Smith Scout Lodge at Chapelwood United Methodist Church every Tuesday when school is in session. Contact John Edmonds, our Scoutmaster, for more information, and we'll show you why Troop 641 is an exciting place for boys to learn and grow.  No prior scouting experience is required!
