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.

Hi fellow troop 993 scouts, leaders, and scout families,

My Eagle project is to make ‘toys’ for people suffering from Alzheimer’s and living at memory-care facilities. This idea was inspired by witnessing how my grandma, who suffers from Alzheimer’s and lives with us, is much happier when given stage-appropriate “toys” that she can handle.

High Adventure 2018 - Sea Base Information AGE UPDATE: 13 years old

Posted on Oct 8 2017 - 8:36pm
Troop 993 has a new event type planned this coming year for Sea Base, their Florida Keys Adventure
Want to experience everything the Florida Keys have to offer? You will paddleboard, ocean kayak, sail, boat, fish, snorkel coral reefs, learn about marine ecosystems, travel to Big Munson Island for an overnight adventure and visit historic Key West. Every day will be a different adventure & other than your overnight on Munson Island, you will spend each night in an air conditioned dormitory.
If you are looking for a program with a wide variety of aquatic activities, this is your adventure & will have you in the Keys for six-nights & seven-days. 
Your crew will fly out the morning of July 16, 2018 to Fort Lauderdale & bus to Sea base (Mile Marker 73.8 on Lower Matecumbe Key located ~75 miles south of Miami). We have spots for 2 crews - each up to 8 individuals , or 16 people total. The cost of this event is $7,025 per crew (~$890/person if both crews are full + airfare/bus)

New for 2018, seabase had lowered the age limit!!! This event is now available to any Scout that will be 13 & 1st Class when they step onto property and any adult with an active Scout membership.  Every attendee will have to pass and submit a complete BSA health form (parts A , B & C) that will still be valid when we leave property (7/23). Mom's are welcome to attend as well (the same requirements apply) and if your sister is >14, she can join our venture crew and come alone as well.  Unlike Philmont & Northern Tier, Adult/Scout ratios are allowed to increase towards 1:1, however we will give Scouts & Venturers priority.
