Outdoor program is the name of our game. Without it, the game doesn't work. Scouting without outing is in the same league as swimming without water - and boys catch on fast. Scouting is effective whenever we take advantage of this truth: The place where Scouting works best is also the place the boys enjoy most: The Outdoors.

We are located at 502 State Spur 73 Midlothian, TX (300 Block S. 5th Street)

We meet every Monday night from 7:00 pm until 8:30 pm when MISD has classes
