Troop 997 welcomes you to our website. During the school year, we meet Monday evenings from 7:15 till 8:45 at Ostmann Elementary School, which is located on the North side of Highway "N" approximately one mile West of the intersection of Highway's K and N at 200 Meriwether Lewis Drive. When school is not in session, we either plan alternate activities, or meet at an alternate site.
Troop 997 is a part of the Boone-Trails District of the Greater St. Louis Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The mission of the B.S.A. is to train young men in how to make ethical decisions through Character Development, Citizenship Training and Mental & Physical Fitness.

Boy Scouting, one of the traditional membership divisions of the BSA, is available to boys who have earned the Arrow of Light Award or have completed the fifth grade, or who are 11 through 17 years old. The program achieves the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness qualities among youth by focusing on a vigorous program of outdoor activities. Any changes to the age requirements by the BSA will be mirrored by Troop 997.
