About Troop 56

Boy Scout Troop 56 offers an adventure-based program designed to offer and encourage effective character, citizenship, and fitness training for boys age 11-17.
In addition to camping, Scouts and adult leaders enjoy activities such as climbing, hiking, skiing, target-shooting, and more while accommodating the needs of today’s busy families.
We're still in the process of building this area and really appreciate feedback.

Where we meet

American Protestant Church
Kennedyallee 150
53175 Bonn, Germany

We meet every other Monday evening all year long (except school holidays).


We are an English-speaking Troop following the BSA program, though we have great success in embedding non-native speakers into the group. Most leaders speak English, German, and another language.

Monthly Outings

The Troop goes on outings on a regular basis. Usually, we leave on Friday evening and return on Sunday. Some outings can be shorter (e.g. day trips) or longer (district camporees on holiday weekends). These can be camps, adventures such as hiking, skiing, cycling, or climbing.

Summer camp

Troop 56 is part of the Transatlantic Council. Our council offers week-long summer camps each year in various locations in Europe.

High Adventure

Being a BSA chartered Troop, our Scouts have the opportunity to go to one of the Boy Scouts of America High Adventure Bases such as the Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico.
