Welcome to Troop 002!

Welcome to Troop 002 chartered 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; created habitats for bats; and built park and recreation amenities for the City of Kennesaw and the Legacy Park communities.

Troop service projects have included 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 Philmont Scout Reservation in New Mexico. 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, and have a great time in the outdoors!

In-Person Scout Meetings Starting on June 15

Posted on Jun 8 2020 - 2:35pm

Hi everyone,

 
The Troop 002 committee and our ASMs met on Sunday to discuss the best approach to moving forward with the Troop opening up in-person activities. After reviewing our parent survey results and comments, and a good discussion, we have decided to start in-person meetings again on June 15th. There will still be a virtual meeting on June 8th, but that will be the last entirely virtual meeting.
