About Us

Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Troop 280 (Boys) and Troop 3280 (Girls) are based at the Epiphany Lutheran Church in Chandler Arizona. Get Address and Map

We are a Youth led troop but have a strong adult leader group that provides support to the troop to ensure their successful and safe operation.

Both Troops meet on Thursday evenings at 7:00 - 8:30 pm. The first Thursday of the month is our Patrol Leader Council meetings, and no general troop meeting is held on that day.

Our scouts are organized in patrols mixed with younger and older Scouts, which helps the scouts learn leadership by assisting scouts through the progression of their ranks, and enables our boy-led approach.

Scouts in Troop 280 & 3280 will learn exceptional leadership skills, and we are proud to have almost a 30% rate of our Scout earning the rank of Eagle Scout!

Arizona is blessed with phenomenal access to the outdoors, a great climate for most of the year and tremendous diversity in terrains and geographical zones. We make it our mission to make the most of what Arizona has to offer through hiking, camping, biking, water sports, snow sports and enjoying high adventure activities.

Our scouts have the opportunity to provide service to our community through our sponsoring organization (Epiphany Lutheran Church), Eagle Scout projects and service toward various non-profit organizations. They mature and develop into fine young men and their character and achievements speak for themselves.

The troop does hold meetings over the summer and plans a variety of fantastic activities, including Summer Camp at Camp Geronimo, where new scouts can get a good start on badge work while having a great deal of fun too in the cooler climate of the Coconino Forests of the Mogollon Rim. Older Scouts participate in several High adventure summer camps, including Emerald Bay, Rocky Mountain High Adventure Base, Philmont Scout Ranch, Florida Sea Base, Northern Tier, and The Summit Bechtel Reserve.
