Welcome to Troop 002!

Welcome to Troop 002 sponsored by the Legacy Park HOA in Kennesaw, GA.

We serve the Legacy Park communities, the surrounding neighborhoods, and the City of Kennesaw.

We are part of the Silver Comet District within the Atlanta Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

Founded in 2010 Troop 002 has quickly developed a reputation within the district for producing quality Eagle Scout candidates and for giving back to the community through service. The Eagle Scout projects of our candidates have fed the hungry; expanded facilities for local schools, churches, and temples; aided in the adoption of shelter animals; developed fish habitats for the Corps of Engineers; and built park and recreation amenities for the City of Kennesaw and the Legacy Park communities.

Troop service projects have included sponsoring and hosting the district Belt Look Bonanza, staffing 9/11 memorial services, staffing the City of Kennesaw Backyard Camp Out, and more.

The troop camps year round. We average 13 overnight camp outs per year including summer camp (6 nights) and annual High Adventure excursions. This year's High Adventure team is going to Northern Tier in Minnesota. We believe in the benefits of our outdoor program and encourage every scout to camp as often as they can.

Our purpose is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Merit Badge Clinic Information

Posted on Apr 8 2018 - 10:18pm

If you have any information on upcoming merit badge clinics, would you email a link to the Secretary, atlwender@comcast.net, to include in our Blast each week. Some of you are very good about following up on merit badge clinics, and it would be a tremendous service to share your info with those of us who are not as diligent. Thank you!

ATTENTION: MED FORMS NEEDED!

Posted on Mar 4 2018 - 7:00pm

It's a new year and you know what that means! NEW MED FORMS! After completing forms A&B, please put them in the "turn-it-in" bin.

Q. What is meant by "Annual"?
A. An AHMR (Annual Health and Medical Record) is valid through the end of the 12th month from the date it was administered by your medical provider. For example, a physical administered March 3, 2014, would be valid until March 31, 2015. The AHMR in use before March 1, 2014, will be valid only until April 1, 2015, and only if it was completed before April 1, 2014. OUR TROOP COLLECTS MEDICAL RECORDS AT THE START OF EVERY CALENDAR YEAR BECAUSE KEEPING UP WITH EVERY SCOUT'S INDIVIDUAL DATE IS ABSOLUTELY TOO CUMBERSOME.

Frequently Asked Questions

Posted on May 18 2017 - 10:43am

How often do the Boy Scouts meet?

We have Troop meetings every Monday night from 7:00 pm until 8:30 all year round. There are select occassions through the year in which a troop meeting doesn't happen (during some school holidays, after a long weekend camping trip, etc) but you should always check the calendar on the web site for up-to-date information. We camp on the average of once per month and have other events through the month as opportunities arise that are for fundraising, merit badge clinics, service projects and other fun! Although we encourage the Scout to participate as much as possible, he chooses what events and trips to take advantage of based on other commitments.
