For more than 60 years, Boy Scout Troop 48 has provided scouting opportunities for youth in the Colonial Heights area of Kingsport, Tennessee. The troop is sponsored by Colonial Heights Presbyterian Church where they meet every Tuesday night from 7:00 - 9:00.
Each month, Troop 48 scouts and leaders participate in outings that vary from truck-in camping to backpacking, canoeing, and rappelling. The goal of these activities is to have fun while developing physical and mental abilities.
Troop activities are designed to enable scouts to develop and demonstrate skills that will allow them to earn a variety of merit badges and advance in rank from Tenderfoot to Eagle.
Troop 48 provides excellent opportunities for scouts to develop and practice leadership skills. Activities are planned and coordinated by patrols and the Leadership Corps consisting of senior scouts.
The troop participates in a variety of community service projects throughout the year including Adopt-A-Highway, Scouting for Food, and various projects planned and supervised by Eagle Scout candidates.
