BSA Troop 33

About Troop 33

Troop 33 was founded in 1952 and is the oldest continuously operating troop in Canyons District. Our charter organization is Tustin Presbyterian Church. However, our boys come from a variety of faiths. The church provides meeting and storage rooms exclusively for our use, which makes our "Scout House" among the best in the council. Tustin Presbyterian Church has been very good to us and we actively participate in Scout Sunday and service projects for the benefit of the church.

Currently we have about 60 registered scouts divided into four multi-age patrols. We follow the patrol method. We emphasize fundamental scout skills. We wear full uniforms. We go camping at least 10 times a year, both tailgating and high adventure. We participate in Camporees and week-long summer camp. We have sent representatives to the last National and World Jamborees.

Although we have produced 185 Eagle Scouts, we are not an Eagle factory. Our boys are provided continuous opportunities to advance. They are counseled. They are encouraged. They must do the work themselves.

We welcome new members from the greater Tustin area at any time. Please stop by on a Tuesday night, between 7:00PM and around 8:15PM, and see for yourself.
