Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 993!

Boy Scout Troop 993 is part of the Sam Houston Area Council, Mustang District, in West Houston sponsored by Ashford United Methodist Church. Troop 993 is a boy-led troop that is mentored and supervised by adult volunteer leaders. Parents are a very integral part of our troop program. It is through their participation as ASMs and Troop Committee members that we can provide a safe, interesting and varied program. Boys ages 11 - 17 are invited to join our troop. We meet every Monday evening at 7:30 PM at the Scout building behind the Church located at 2201 S. Dairy Ashford Rd, between Westheimer & Whitington.

Hello Troop 993 Scouts and Parents,

Philmont Crew Update - Key Dates Included!

See important letter from Mr. Brochu below= 

It seems like we just had our kick off meeting a few months ago, but here we are -  24 days away from our trip. Weather update for Philmont hasn't changed much in the past month, it snowed there this morning and they are expecting a high of 47 degrees today. The almanac shows record highs of 86 and lows of 28 for our trip & the 14 day forecast seems to be in line with those bands (dry with highs of 82, lows of 35).

Volunteer Positions Remain Open

Posted on May 22 2016 - 12:59pm

Thanks to everyone that came out to the Parent Coffee in late March.  We appreciate parents have volunteered to take on new troop positions, including Mr. Worley (Outdoor Act.), Mrs. Frain (Membership), Mr. Escobedo (Treas.), Mrs. Campbell (Adv.), and others supporting boards of review and committee.  We continue to look for some key roles like Communication/Webmaster, Fundraiser Coordinator, Medical Form Coordinator, Assistant Scout Masters and others. Look over the signup genius, let us know what interest you may have.  Now that the school year is winding down, it might be a good time to transition/learn a new role. 


Finally, check out this link for more good information about the Committee positions:


Please contact Derick Smith at desmith@spectraenergy.com if you are interested in a troop position.  Talk to Mr. Brochu if you have interest in becoming an Assistant Scoutmaster.
