Welcome to BSA Troop 147—"The Eagle Makers." We are chartered by First Presbyterian Church in Holland, MI. We are a member of the President Gerald R. Ford Field Service Council and the Michigan Crossroads Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
A boy who spends one year in a Scout troop will learn lifetime skills. He will learn basic outdoor skills, first aid, citizenship training, leadership skills, self-reliance, and how to get along with others. Scouting will prepare him to live a more productive and fulfilling life.

Our troop meetings are Monday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 pm in the Fellowship Hall (i.e., the basement) of:
