Boy Scout Troop 290 has been serving the Fox Chase and Rockledge areas of Philadelphia and Montgomery Counties in Pennsylvania since 1938. We are part of Cradle of Liberty Council - Roosevelt District. Our boys learn leadership, team building and event planning skills while enjoying an active outdoor program. The boys of troop 290 plan and participate in eight weekend camping trips and one full week over the summer. They also have the opportunity to participate in Community Oriented Projects, Hikes and volunteer opportunities through both the local Boy Scout Council and Community Organizations. Not only do most of our boys attain the Rank of Eagle, but are also involved in local sports, CYO, theatre, school governments and other activities.
