following the Scout Oath and Law.

Troop 337 follows the BSA's Two Deep Leadership requirement, and Youth Protection Policies at all times.  We have fully Trained Leaders, Scoutmaster, and Assistant Scoutmasters.  If you are looking for a Troop, to have Fun, while participating in Campouts, Advancement, Merit Badge Opportunities, Services to the Communities, than this Troop is for you!!   Please follow the Contact our Troop Link on the top of this page for more information.



Every summer we take a weeklong trip to Many Point Scout Camp just north of Detroit Lakes, MN. Boys enjoy swimming, canoeing, shooting, working on merit badges, climbing and much more over the course of the week. With the help of one of the best camp staffs in the country, boys come home with much more than just their merit badges.




Throughout the year the troop attends almost all of the Lake Minnetonka District camporees. We also camp on our own as a troop taking advantage of the many parks and wildlife areas that surround Victoria including the State Parks of Minnesota. Campout activities include advancement work, cooking, orienteering, hiking and much more.
