We are a Scout led troop based in Rio Rancho, New Mexico that encourages family involvement and support. Our troop is part of the Great Southwest Council, Rio Grande District. We are proud of every scout who has climbed the advancement trail to new heights.
It is the philosophy of the Scouting movement, Troop 17 and Crew 17 to welcome all young people, regardless of background or ability, who are willing to accept Scouting’s values and meet the other requirements of membership. All young people who meet the BSA membership requirements, including those with any form of disability and from any religious background, are encouraged to consider registering with Troop 17 or Crew 17.
