From the Scoutmaster

Welcome to Troop 493's Website

We hope you find it easy to navigate, and informative about our troop’s activities. Troop 493 prides itself on offering a fun, yet diversified program, challenging our scouts both physically and mentally, helping to prepare them for life’s joys and trials ahead. We have great depth in our leadership (I have been Scoutmaster since 1977, and the Committee Chairman has been with us since 1982), and a proactive committee and scoutmaster staff to assist in carrying out the program you see offered.

Please visit the various areas you see listed on the left side of the page. You can see who we are, and what we do, review our past and future activities, learn about our Indian Dance Team, and see photos taken at one of their performances.

If you live in the Great Neck / First Colonial area, come on by any Monday night, 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm (Wycliffe Presbyterian Church, Great Neck Rd across from Cape Henry Hardware) and pay us a visit.

We’d be happy to hear from you! You can send me a note at
