Welcome to Troop 565, Marietta Georgia's website!  We are thrilled you found us! 

We meet at 7:30 pm on Sundays in the Eastminster Presbyterian Church's Christian Life Center (CLC) located at

3125 Sewell Mill Rd.
Marietta, GA 30062

 Our Troop is boy lead through our Patrol Leaders Committee and our goals include building character, teaching life skills and developing leaders.  We focus on traditional outdoor and Scouting skills and have over 10 outings each year.  Our outings include Summer Camp, rock climbing/rappelling, survival camp, camping, backpacking, snow skiing, orientation flights and canoeing.  These outings and our meetings provide the forum for learning life skills. Our ultimate goal is to help our sons grow from boyhood to authentic manhood; prepared for life, prepared to lead, prepared for success. As such our program of character development is built upon three pillars: leadership, life skills and outings.  Our Troop has had great success in our Road to First Class and our Rising Eagles programs.  It is our hope that every Scout will one day join the fraternity of the Eagle Scouts that came before them and make a difference in our world.

We hope that you will join us and consider being part of our elite group of young men!
