Troop 1036 is a Boy Scout Troop chartered in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan with Kirk
in the Hills Presbyterian Church. Our focus is to provide boys ages 11-18 a positive
goal oriented activity that builds strong leaders, capable young men, good students,
and solid citizens who are engaged in their families and community. We have over
80% of our boys completing Scouting's highest rank of Eagle. While this is important
to us, our main goal is not simply to create Eagle Scouts, but strong, capable,
and caring young men.
Boys love adventure, that's why Boy Scouting is so great. We love to camp monthly
throughout the active program year and go to many different locations throughout
the lovely state of Michigan. Canoe trips, hiking, cycling, swimming, zip-lining,
and so much more are offered in idyllic settings and great memories are formed through
Developing strong leaders is important to us, just as much as promoting our scouts
up the ranks of Boy Scouting. We have an 85% rate of boys attaining the highest
rank of Eagle Scout. Plenty of opportunities are available to our boys through community
service, Order of the Arrow, Nationally recognized leadership programs, and many
more await our boys.
Having fun is also a big part of Scouting and the friendships and camaraderie that
comes along with the Troop dynamic. Troop meetings offer plenty of fun playing games
with each other- Capture the Flag is always a favorite, but also Limbo, Frisbee,
and more traditional Scout relay games to improve skills are enjoyed every week.
Our troop is small enough to allow all boys ample opportunity to try their hand
at leading. We also work with a Cub Scout Pack mentoring the younger Scouts grooming
them to become capable Boy Scouts one day. A great deal of learning comes from older
boys teaching younger ones.
Our boys participate in the prestigious Mackinac Island Scout Service Camp every
summer. This experience is like no other for area scouts. They have the opportunity
to interact with the public in a professional environment providing a valuable service
to their state. Every boy who is chosen to attend can't wait to go back again and
We welcome new members and visitors curious about joining on this wonderful adventure
