Boy Scout Troop 16
(Savannah , Georgia)
ScoutLander Contact Our Troop Member Login




The troop is a quality unit that celebrates over 85 years of scouting excellence.  We are part of the Tidelands District in the Coastal Empire Council.  Troop 16 is proud to be chartered by Blessed Sacrament Church in Savannah, Georgia.  We meet at the church, located at the corner of Waters Avenue and Victory Avenue in Savannah, on Sunday afternoons from 1:30-3:00 p.m. 

The Boy Scout model is to be "Boy Led/Adult Guided." Here the Scouts are in charge and make decisions about weekly/monthly agendas and choosing camping destinations. Adult leaders provide an environment that allows boys to experience what it means to be a "Boy Scout."

If this sounds like something you (or your son) would be interested in for yourselves, Please feel free to stop by and visit us any Sunday afternoon at 1:30p.m. If you have any questions about Scouting or the way this troop operates, please check our FAQ (Frequestly Asked Questions) page.

We especially welcome:

** 2nd year Webelos Scouts and parents searching for a Boy Scout troop that is right for them
** Current Boy Scouts who may be "bored" in their current troop
** Former Scouts who may have quit before giving another troop a try.

If you have questions, please contact our scoutmaster, John Taylor, at email: or telephone 912.655.4018.

Why Scouting

Scout Oath 
Scout Law 
On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
A Scout is:
Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful,
Friendly, Courteous, Kind, 
Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty,
Brave, Clean, Reverent

For over 100 years, the Boy Scout program has instilled in youth the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law.  Today, these values are just as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910.  Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.

The Boy Scouts of America provides youth (ages 11-18) with programs and activities that allow them to: 


  • Try new things.
  • Provide service to others.
  • Build self-confidence.
  • Reinforce ethical standards.
  • Nurture love for the outdoors.
  • Acquire new friendships.
  • Accentuate teamwork.
  • Gain leadership skills.


While various activities and youth groups teach basic skills and promote teamwork, Scouting goes beyond that and encourages youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in their community.

Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as individuals.  It is communicated to them that those in the Scouting family care about what happens to them, regardless of whether a game is won or lost.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem.  As a result, when hard decisions have to be made, peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made.

Most importantly, Scouting is a lot of fun!
