WELCOME TO OUR TROOP
Welcome to Troop 142 of the Westark Area Council, Razorback District! We are located in Fayetteville, AR and our chartering sponsor is the First United Presbyterian Church. The troop was founded in 1973 and has been a real success due to the fine leadership and parental involvement. With an average registration of 54 scouts and 15 scouters, we meet on a weekly basis with the exception of holidays. The Monday evening meetings are held at the First United Presbyterian Church on the 2nd floor of the Witherspoon Building from 7:00 - 8:30, with class "A" uniforms mandatory on the first Monday of each month and class "B" for the remainder.
With outdoor activities planned monthly, we seem to accomplish the needs of the camping and backpacking enthusiasts. We attend Camp Orr Adventure Base annually, which is our long term council summer camp, and is our highlight of the year along with the 54 mile or 103 mile float trip on the Buffalo National River. We have backpacked at Philmont in 1997, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2009.. Hoisted sails and snorkeled at the Florida Sea Base in 1999, 2000, 2002, 2008 and a trek scheduled for March of 2013. Floated the boundary waters at the Canadian Northern Tier High Adventure Base in 2004 and 2011. The troop attends 2 Camporees yearly, which are hosted by our district, and with lots of monthly troop outings on the agenda.
