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 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.

Woodruff - Medical Form C

Posted on Jun 25 2017 - 8:18pm

Several Scouts are missing all or some of the medical forms required to attend Woodruff. You must turn in Forms A, B, and C, as well as copies of the front and back of your insurance cards, and proof of immunizations. Pat Gallagher, the Troop's medical officer, sent an email summarizing which documents he's still missing. These forms need to be turned in ASAP. On Sunday morning, when we depart, it's going to take a LONG time if we have to process the current list of missing medical papers. Form C requires a doctor's signature. This can be acquired through your child's personal physician or a minute clinic for a fee. Scouts who are missing any of these forms will not be allowed to go. This is BSA/Woodruff policy. Please turn in your paperwork at tomorrow's meeting.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
