Troop 77 is Switzerland's oldest existing BSA Troop, in fact, we were the first Boy Scout Troop in Geneva!
Troop 77 has been an active member of the Community in Geneva since at least 1969. For over 40 years, we have been preparing youth in Geneva to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law through the experiences of camping, hiking, teamwork, and community service
We are part of the Transatlantic Council (TAC) and we are chartered by the Church of Emmanuel in Geneva. Troop 77 meets fortnightly on Tuesday evenings - 7:00pm at the Collège du Léman, Versoix (with enough interest, it is also possible to have meetings at the Ecole Internationale de Genève - La Grande Boissière campus).
Troop 77 is a SCOUT-led Troop!
Sir Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the World Scout Movement, once said that a Scoutmaster should "never do anything a boy cannot do." This is a statement that we take very seriously. Our entire program is run with Baden-Powell's admonition in mind! Our Scouts plan and execute the program with only guidance from adults.
Troop 77 features monthly campouts and several "high-adventure" activities such as multiple-day canoe and backpacking trips. We are also active in the community!
The 2018-19 year has kept us busy! Several of our Scouts & Scouters attended the Klondike Derby 'Snowpocalypse' Camp 2019 at Kandersteg in the Swiss Alps. Troop 77 was proud to be placed 2nd out of the 20 BSA Troops that attended from all over the world! We also attended Kandersteg again in the summer for Camp Alpine at the end of June and early July 2019.
2019-20 started with SCOUT SATURDAY-RECRUITMENT DAY alongside BSA Pack 130 (ages 5-11), on Saturday, 31 August 2019. We met at Terrain Jakob in Meyrin. Details on our facebook page.
