BSA Troop 150 has been recycling trees for our neighbors for over 30 years and “Creating Life Experiences” for middle and high school aged scouts (boys and now girls) in the greater Portland Metro area since 1985. We stand behind our mission to create memories the scouts will have for their lifetime, and we help the boys develop into men. Your donations help support our numerous troop events and outings, while providing these scouts with the resources they need to learn leadership skills, build strong moral character, and give back to the community through volunteer service.
Lost Trees; Some trees will not be picked up until Sunday. If your tree is not picked up by 3:00 pm Sunday (and was out on the curb before 9:00 am on Saturday), contact us at the phone or email below, and we will put you on our lost tree list and get your tree as soon as possible. We do our best to leave no tree behind! Email: Trees@Troop150.org. Voice Message: 503-345-9695.

We are planning for summer camp 2020 and need scouts and adults to register ASAP. On the registration page are options for the pre-trip and please indicate your preferences. go to our Troop150.org/registration/ page to register. You can also see who is currently registered!
Note: We need you to indicate if you are not planning on attending summer camp by completing the registration page!
Summer Camp for all new scouts wanting to rank up on the trail to first class. (Obie Rangers, award winning program) and any 2nd or 3rd year scout looking for some leadership time any older scout not going to Philmont looking for some fun and leadership.
This event is not in place of troop 150 summer camp. it is in addition to. If you can only make one, then choose summer camp in August. This is designed to help newer scouts get the lion’s share of requirements for basic scouting under their belt so they can enjoy summer camp with more gusto in August.
With the greatest reluctance and a heavy heart I am writing to let you know that we have canceled all Troop 150 activities indefinitely.
I am truly sorry for the Scouts who will not experience cross over. I am truly sorry for the disappointment that must be felt by all our Scouts, whether veterans or just beginning to transition into our Troop, particularly our first class of young women. I am truly sorry that ours is yet another in long, long list of cancellations at this extraordinary and unprecedented time in our nation’s history.
We recite the Scout oath and law at every meeting. Sometimes when we repeat something often enough, that repetition leads us to gloss over the depth and meaning of what we are actually saying. As I was typing this note and thinking of our canceled meetings and that recitation, I paused and went through both, slowly. There is much to draw on.
It’s definitely a time to be clean!
We should help others, particularly in this time of need.
Be kind. Be courteous. These are stressful times for all, and kindness goes a long way.
We are having and informational meeting to get things started, please
join the leaders for a meeting in Calvin Hall at St Andrews on Monday,
March 2nd, at 7 pm. Regular troop meetings are on Wednesdays at 7 pm in
Friendship Hall. Email Info@Troop150.org if you have any questions.
