Mountain View UMC is proud to be the charter organization for Troop 714. We're thankful for their presence and their willingness to always step up and help. While several of our church members have grown up in Troop 714, it is not a requirement to attend Mountain View.
Troop 714 has been going strong since 1966! In 1987, the troop moved to Mountain View United Methodist Church. The troop's first Eagle Scout was recognized in 1975. The troop proudly proclaims that as of 2018, they have added almost 150 additional Eagles to that roster. In fact, you will see several Eagle Scout projects found around the Mountain View grounds!
Today the troop is about 60 members strong and growing through the addition of members from Cub Scout Packs soon to join the family. The growth is nurtured through the dedication of the 40+ adult leaders of the troop who work tirelessly to help the boys have a memorable experience of learning through respect and fellowship.
The troop is very active with troop meetings Monday evenings at 7pm. The boys enjoy the outdoors through activities like camping, hiking, backpacking, and canoeing. These activities range from the patrol level to those organized by the district and council.
