We meet from 7.30-9.00pm on Wednesday nights during the school year.
Boys meet in the Fellowship Hall and the girls meet in the Youth lounge.
Each month from September to May the troop goes on an outing. Typically for these we leave on Friday evening and return on Sunday. These are usually camps, adventures such as skiing, mountain biking, sailing or climbing.
Brownsea 39 is the annual planning meeting that takes place in August. Here the scout leadership with other older scouts, plan the troop meetings and outings activity for the coming scouting year.
Troop 39 attends a week-long summer camp each year in June at a Council-approved camp.
In addition to the adventures each month, Troop 39 plans a High Adventure trip each summer. Each 4 years, the troop traditionally goes the the World Scout Center in Kandersteg, Switzerland, twice joining our sister troop from Bristol in the United Kingdom for the British High Adventure and to one of the BSA’s High Adventure Bases such as the Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico.

For those joining the troop in 2019, the pro-rated fees are set at $70.
Troop 39 is proud of its trained and committed adult leaders.
