About Our Troop
We are Troop 504 Amherst, a Scouts BSA troop located in Amherst, Massachusetts. We are chartered by the Immanuel Lutheran Church, located adjacent to the UMASS Campus on North Pleasant Street in Amherst.
We seek to teach youth important skills and to instill in them the ideals of service, character, and leadership. We are a youth-run troop; the scouts dictate the program and our adult volunteers serve as advisors and supporters. We meet weekly on Sunday evenings at 7PM, and we do at least one big outdoor activity per month, usually a weekend camping trip. But above all, Troop 504 seeks to allow youth to learn and grow while having fun.

What is Scouts BSA?
Scouts BSA is scouting for youth between the age of 10.5 years and 18 years.
At Troop 504, we serve our community through a variety of efforts. For example, on July 4, 2022, the Troop served as the Color Guard at a naturalization ceremony in Northampton MA.
The BSA’s mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
