Troop 461, sponsored by Epworth United Methodist Church, is a medium sized, boy led,  outdoor oriented troop.  The troop follows the tenants of the scout program to teach our young men leadership, outdoor skills, community involvement, and explore the numerous merit badge learning opportunites.  In support of our outdoor program, we try to have an outing every month, attend summer camp every year and have sent crews to Philmont, Northern Tier, and Seabase.  We meet every Tuesday during the school year starting at 7:00pm.   


Our Troop was founded in 1951, with 25 different Scout Masters and a deep history in Durham NC.  Over 115 boys have earned the rank of Eagle while participating in our Troop. Come see the plaques , maybe there is some one you know!

Boy Scouts of America

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America 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.

Scout Oath 

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight
