Presently Troop 87 has 45 scouts that are on roster that meet weekly. The Troop scout leaders have scheduled campouts every six weeks to give the scouts an opportunity to complete their advancement requirements. Troop 87 strives to provide the best scouting program in the Gulf Breeze District of the South Texas Council.
The picture to the left represents only a fraction of the total number of scouts that are active in the troop.
There are 31 adult leaders that serve as committee members so the scouts will be able to have a quality scouting program.

- you go fishing and see a young boy fiishing and walk over and ask him what all he needs to do to earn his fishing merit badge anbd find out he is not even a scout.
- get a phone call from a parent from another troop wanting to tranfer into your troop and end up talking for an hour and forget why the parent called.
- look through pictures from past campouts and relaize that some of these scouts now are in college and or married.
