Welcome to Troop 525's Website!


Welcome to the website of Troop 525 in Peachtree Corners, GA! Chartered with eight boys in August 1984 Troop 525 is boy-led and each is required to hold leadership positions as he advances in rank. The troop meets each Monday night, while school is in session, beginning at 7:30 PM at Simpsonwood United Methodist Church (SUMC) 4500 Jones Bridge Circle, Peachtree Corners, GA 30092. This site contains information for the scouts, parents, members and volunteers of our troop. Visitors are always welcome. Come join us!

Boys who are older than 10, or who have completed the fifth grade can join the Boy Scouting program.  Cub Scouting is for boys in the first through fifth grades, or 7 to 10 years of age. For information about Cub Scouts please contact Pack 525 (pack525cubmaster @ gwinnettbsa dot org).

Service Hours Opportunity - Tomorrow (Saturday 1/23/2021) Supporting Pack

Posted by robertgates on Jan 22 2021 - 10:42am

Scouts/Parents... We were given little notice on this, so apologies for the less than 24 hours notice.  If any Scouts are available, need service hours, or just want to help support our local CubScout Pack 575 tomorrow please let myself or Mr. Donaldson know asap.  As the note shares below from the CubMaster, we'd be supporting the AOL scouts as they cook and possibly provide a class or two of our own.  I also posted a note in the Scouts GroupMe.

New / Revised Eagle Scout Project Workbook

Posted by robertgates on Jan 8 2021 - 7:53am
ALL Scouts / Parents - (especially Life Scouts beginning to work on their Eagle Project)
BSA has put out an updated Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook that needs to be used for Eagle Projects.  My understanding is that IF your project has already been approved by the Troop and District you would continue to use the project workbook you have.  On the positive side this workbook opens in a web page and does not appear to have the download steps needed for the prior versions.

Update on NEW Diversity Equity and Inclusion Merit Badge

Posted by robertgates on Jan 8 2021 - 7:52am

Proposed Eagle Scout Required Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Merit Badge Delayed

Note from BSA - January 7, 2021
The introduction of the proposed Diversity, Equity and Inclusion merit badge is being delayed to allow for the careful consideration and evaluation of feedback received from a wide variety of commenters on the draft requirements. Until further notice, all Scouts working on the Eagle Scout rank should continue to use current rank requirements. Once the Eagle-required Diversity, Equity and Inclusion merit badge is introduced, Scouts in the process of earning the rank of Eagle Scout will be given adequate time to earn it.
