Troop 13 is chartered by Christ Community Church and is a registered Boy Scout Troop of the Natchez Trace District within the Middle Tennessee Council. Troop 13’s Scoutmaster is David MaGuirk. Our Troop has a very committed adult leadership team that strives to guide the boys in accomplishing a "boy lead" program. Visitors are always welcome, so please come and be our honored guest! Meetings are held in the Fellowship Hall each Monday night from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM at

Christ Community Church

1215 Hillsboro Road, Franklin,TN

Troop 13’s meetings follow the Williamson County school calendar . If Williamson County schools are closed on Monday due to a holiday or inclement weather – there will be no Troop meeting that night. We meet 11 months of the year. The exception is July which is reserved for High Adventure activities.

Currently there are approximately 70 young men involved with scouting at Troop 13. These young men come from a variety of educational experiences including city, county, private and homeschool. Scouting 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. A boy does NOT have to have been a Cub Scout or Webelos to become a Boy Scout.


Troop 13 seeks to plan an outdoor activity every month of the year except December. Our treks take us across the beautiful state of Tennessee and beyond. Opportunities include many of the follwing activities: camping, caving, snow skiing, backpacking, hiking, climbing, rappelling, canoeing and whitewater rafting. Please refer to the Troop Calendar for dates of upcoming outdoor experiences. In addition to our monthly outdoor program, Troop 13 also offers the opportunity for our Scouts to participate in High Adventure Trips. Past trips include trips to the Philmont, Boundry Waters Canoeing, Grand Canyon, and Bahamas Sailing Adventure.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please email our Scoutmaster, Mr. David MaGuirk, or complete the survey form on our “Contact Us” page.
