Become a Scout in Geneva!

Listen Again

Thursday, 31 August 2023 - 8 minutes

Is it all just camp fires and knot-tying? Tom and Bella from Troop 77 in Geneva join us in the WRS studio to tell us what's really involved in being a Scout! 

And if you're 11 - 18 y.o. and interested in becoming a Scout in Geneva, head along to the Troop 77 open evening at the Salle Communale in Chambesy 17:30 - 21:00.

There you'll see how the BSA Scouting programme goes above and beyond and provides activities that: encourage scouts to try new things, nurture a love for the outdoors, advocate service to others, build self-confidence, foster new friendships, emphasise teamwork, cultivate citizenship, promote leadership skills, and most importantly, are LOTS of fun!

Scouts aim to follow the Scout Oath, Scout Law, Scout Motto and Scout Slogan in the hopes that this prepares young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetime by instilling in them these values.

Troop 77 meets on Tuesdays, every other week during term time at Collège Du Léman.

Troop 77 also often works with Troop 130, whose members are based mostly in Vaud (between Commugny and Nyon) and Neighbouring France. For those even younger, look into joining Geneva’s cub Scout Pack (Pack 130 Geneva).
