Troop 324 is a scout-led troop where the boys decide, lead and participate in their trips, activities, and service projects. The adult leadership guides the scouts on their path to Eagle.
Many thanks to our chartering organization, the Special Forces Association Böblingen.
The troop meets at 7-8:15 PM every Wednesday evening at the Patch Baracks Scout Hut, Stuttgart, Germany (located in building 2352, across from the Patch Hub).
We are looking forward to meeting you,
Scoutmaster Troop 324
Find below some news from our troop:
” A man can drive 100 miles in a car, but if he paddles 1 mile in a canoe he will be much further from where he started”…
…and the troop paddled over 7 miles on the neckar river, some scouts worked on the canoeing merit badge to include capsizing the boats, all slept in teepees and enjoyed a campfire with a full moon. we ended our trip by concquering an old castle that was located right above our campsite.
The troop headed to Dettingen unter Teck for a cooking campout. The scouts did their magic with the dutch ovens to make some fantastic pizza, chicken and lasagne. To spice up the campout, we also enjoyed a great hike, worked on fire building for the younger scouts and built a gigantic tripod-swing.
Our April hiking campout took us to the town of Grossbottwar.
The younger scouts went on a 5 mile hike and conquered an old tower, went up and down vineyards and got to see an old mill in operation before enjoying some ice cream on the medieval town square of Grossbottwar.

Our senior scouts set out for an 8 mile hike that included 345 meters of climbing up the hills and 345 meters down. We enjoyed the view down from the Lichtenberg castle and tasted some freshly baked German bread.

Snow Shelter Camping at Kandersteg, Switzerland
Once again the troop was off to Kandersteg in the heart of the swiss alps to build snow shelters and to enjoy the snow…
“If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there’d be a shortage of fishing poles.” (Doug Larson)
The troop went fishing in the Black Forest and almost a tradition – it snowed on us again…
