Troop 97 is a boy led Troop and Pack chartered by Oak Grove United Methodist Church, located at 4915 Old Highway 11, Hattiesburg, MS. The Troop and Pack are very active and follow a calendar of events designed to teach and instill scout values of building moral character, leadership and self reliance. This troop does traditional backpacking, canoeing, cycling, and camping. Skills are taught through merit badges to improve individual skills and achievements. Troop 97 attends summer and winter camp at Camp Tiak yearly. We also frequently attend other council camps, and High Adventure camps Philmont, Sea Base and Northern Tier, as well as local and national jamborees.

Troop 97 meets at Oak Grove United Methodist located 1 mile North of Highway 98 on Mondays at 6:30pm. Please visit our calendar for a list of upcoming events, camping, trips, and combined cub scout pack nights
