About Troop 22

Background: Troop 22 has a rich history as one of the oldest Troops in the Gulf Ridge Council, originally chartered in 1921.  Since its inception 151 Scouts in Troop 22 have earned their Eagle Rank.  Our Troop is a boy-led organization with diverse programming and an active membership base.  We are sponsored by Hyde Park United Methodist Church, located at 500 West Platt Street, in Tampa, Florida

Meetings: We meet weekly on Mondays at 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm when Hillsborough County public schools are in session. The meeting schedule is set at the beginning of the school year and can be accessed on our web site calendar. Additionally, our troop leaders often send out reminder emails to the Scouts and parents about meetings and the focus of the meeting, if needed.

Outings: We have monthly Camp Outings, also listed on the web site’s calendar. The patrols organize the gear and food for themselves unless the food is being done as a troop or by the camp location. Troop 22 has many campouts that are Troop traditions: Egmont Key, 20-mile canoe outing, winter hike, spring hike, Cayo Costa, etc.

Summer Camps: Troop 22 participates in at least one summer camp and often two. We go to a traditional Boy Scout camp, usually within one days driving distance of Florida. In the recent past we have also had a contingency going to Sea Base in the Florida Keys, Philmont in New Mexico, or Northern Tier in Minnesota. The planning for these trips starts up to a year in advance.

I am a Webelos 2 den leader in Pack 339 and we are starting to meet with different troops to allow the boys to make their boy scout troop decisions.

Could we attend an upcoming meeting either late in summer or early fall? I have 9 active members in my den.

Where do you meet?

Sorry we didn’t see your request until now; everyone’s been away at high adventure at Philmont or at summer camp at Woodruff in Georgia. I will contact you directly via email so we can arrange for you to come visit with us. We have some upcoming events your Webelos might like to attend with our guys, part of the Arrow of Light requirements. Thanks for dropping by to see our site! ~ Kim Fatica, ASM
