Welcome!

Welcome to the Troop 51 website!  We use this site to communicate with our Scouts and their parents, as well as to show off some of the things we love doing, like camping and service projects.

We meet nearly every week at Cook`s Memorial Presbyterian Church, in Charlotte, NC.

Announcements
  • Pictures from the October Trip to Kings Mountain are available.
  • New Eagle Scouts! Daniel Shaner and Tommy Riggs have recently earned the rank of Eagle Scout.  Please congratulate them both.

(You must have the Flash player version 10 to view the photo album.  If you do not have it installed, you will be prompted to install it.)
  • Call for pictures!  If you have pictures from any of our recent trips, please share them with the troop.  Contact Eric Belongia for the password to upload the pictures to this site, or if you prefer, provide the pictures to Eric and he will upload them for you.

  • Chaperon for outings/camping trips
  • Troop Committee
  • Assistant Scoutmaster
  • Advisor to Troop Leadership (ex. helping the Quartermaster)
  • Planning future trips/outings
  • Coordinating fund raisers
If you are interested in helping in any capacity, please come to a meeting and talk with our Scoutmaster, or to any member of the Troop Committee, or contact Eric Belongia.

Training
There are lots of opportunities for training and plenty of information available for self-guided learning.  We are going to try to provide some information on this site that we hope you find useful.  If you have suggestions for additional content, please let Eric Belongia know.

Photos
While we have some photos on this site, we invite you to send us links to more photos you may have stored online.  Please remember to avoid adding anyone's full name as a caption to the photos.  First names only!
