Troop 603 History

Troop 603 formed in 1959 as Troop 63. In 1961, the troop was renumbered as Troop 103. With the merger of Wabano and the Southwestern Michigan Councils in 1974, the troop became Troop 603. Our troop has been continuously chartered by the Stevensville United Methodist Church for over 50 years. We are honored to continue the tradition of excellent outdoor adventure through scouting.

Who Can Join

Our troop is open to all boys who meet the BSA age requirements. Any boys between the age of 11 and 18 may become members. Boys who are 10 years old may also join if they have either completed 5th grade or completed the Cub Scout Arrow of Light requirements. Boys do not have to have been in Cub Scouts to become members of our troop. Boys are not obligated to join the Boy Scout Troop closest to their home, and we welcome Boys from all over the Southwest Michigan area. Boys from Stevensville, St. Joseph, Coloma, Bridgman, Three Oaks, Sawyer, Lakeside, and Berrien Springs are or have been members of our troop. We welcome the diversity of boys, both geographical and of varying ability. We have also worked with, and welcome boys with disabilities.
