PARSIPPANY — Since 1954 Scouts BSA Boy Troop 72, chartered by Saint Peter the Apostle Church, has been proudly serving the boys of Parsippany and the surrounding area.  Over these 65 years of scouting they have seen many changes to the scouting movement and they are excited to participate in the latest transformations of the program.  They are thrilled to announce the founding and start of Scouts BSA Girl Troop 72.

On March 12, 2019, our institution head Rev. Msgr. Herbert K. Tillyer, PA signed and approved the application for this new unit to be formed with Patriots Path Council.  This unit will also be chartered by Saint Peter the Apostle Church and their troop committee will share members with the existing Scouts BSA Boy Troop 72 committee.  Scouts BSA Girl Troop 72 will provide the girls of the Parsippany area their first opportunity to participate in the Scouts BSA program which has been very much loved by the boys of the Parsippany area for many years.

Scouts BSA Boy Troop 72 currently has over 50 registered scouts and 40 registered adult leaders.  With 92 scouts having earned the rank of Eagle Scout since our founding, we are excited for this opportunity to share the values of scouting with more youth in the Parsippany area.

The new troop is forming now, with some scouts coming from the Cub Scout program.  They are pleased to now welcome anyone between the ages of 11 and 17 to join our units.  If you would like more information, please email scoutsbsa@parsippanytroop72.org.
