About Troop 74
Boy Scout Troop 74 is located in Akron, Ohio and is chartered to:
The Firestone Park United Methodist Church
250 N. Firestone Blvd.
Akron, OH 44301
***New scout parents are encouraged to check out the Scout Parent Info page.***
Troop 74 consists primarily of boys between the ages of 11 and 17. The troop is broken into patrols that take part in campouts as well as other events run by the District and Council.
Generally we like to participate in at least one campout or other major activity each month. We meet on Monday nights throughout the school year from 6:30-8:30 PM at the Firestone Park United Methodist Church. Troop 74 is led by Scoutmaster Larry Stanek.
Troop 74 is a boy led troop. That is, the Scouts, with the help of adult leaders, direct, organize and participate in all outings and activities. We believe in the patrol method; teaching our Scouts to work in teams, and encourage continual and consistent achievement toward their next rank, and learning through earning Merit Badges.
