Located in Anthem, Arizona about 30 miles north of Phoenix, Troop 432 is open to all boys ages 11-18 years who live in the surrounding communities of Anthem, New River, Tramonto, and Phoenix.
Troop 432 was chartered in January 2003 by six scouts and their families. The Troop is in the Thunderbird District of the Grand Canyon Council. Currently over 50 scouts strong and growing, Troop 432 is heavily active in outdoor activities. Adventures include frequent Grand Canyon hikes, camping, community service projects; multiple District and BSA sanctioned events including Emerald Bay and Philmont.
Troop meetings are held weekly on Thursday evenings from 7:00pm-8:30pm at Cross of Christ Church during the school year. Summer meeting dates and locations vary. We do not meet in July.
We are sponsored by the Knights of Columbus of St. Rose. As a community group, parents of scouts are expected to volunteer in some capacity--as merit badge counselors, outing chaperones, committee members, and help with fundraising. The success of the Troop depends largely on the involvement of the parents and families!
Troop 432’s Committee and Adult Leadership are strong proponents of the BSA’s Aims and Methods of Scouting. Troop 432 encourages the patrol method during our weekly meetings and in the planning and structure of our monthly campouts.
