Troop 80 has been continuously sponsored as a Boy Scout Troop in Amarillo since 1955  and currently  holds the honor of a "50 Year" Troop.  Troop 80 has produced over 295 Eagle Scouts.

There is an effort to have a balanced program, providing fun, advancement and adventure (11+ trips a year) for the scouts. Safety and security are paramount on our camps.   Part of our program includes year round training in swimming.  We also have an extensive program for our older Scouts .

Troop 80 is also recognized each year by  the Golden Spread Council  for earning the National Camping Award.  Our Troop has claimed victory at  many of the local competitions with other Troops in the Golden Eagle District and Golden Spread Council.  The Troop is annually recognized  by the Boy Scouts of America as a National Quality Unit Our Troop was 50 years old in 2005. The 50th Anniversary Reunion was held over Labor Day Weekend 2005.

Troop 80's program strives to follow the principles and ideas laid out in the Boy Scout  handbook. The Troop strives to instill the values found in the Scout Oath, Law, Motto and Slogan in all our youth.  Troop 80 meets at the Jack Bryant Scout Center which also houses the Fred Poppe Museum.  It is located at 1615 Bellaire, Amarillo, TX 79106.

Troop 80 meets on Tuesday nights between 7:00 and 9:00.  The Scoutmaster of Troop 80 is Stephen Tillery.  He earned his Eagle Scout rank in Troop 80.  Feel free to stop by and visit during any meeting.  Our mailing address is PO Box 2707 Amarillo, TX 79105-2702.  Please click on the compass below for a street  level map of Amarillo if you need directions.

Troop 80  strongly feels that the Troop is for the boys.  The Troop is intentionally designed to run on the  leadership of the boys, starting with the Senior Patrol Leader.  In this way, a boy can learn the value and responsibility of leadership, a hallmark of  the American Boy Scouting program.
