Training Great Leaders Since 1919

Tay House Troop 19 Mother's Day Photograph

For nearly 100 years, Tay House has been training the youth of the greater Rochester area to become great leaders. The Tay House philosophy, which is based on a unique, fun, and educational outdoor program, has remained largely unchanged since the troop's founding.  Through progressive steps in leadership our scouts develop confidence, self reliance, and responsibility.  Older scouts guide younger scouts while being mentored by an experienced group of adult volunteers, many of whom are Tay House alumni and Eagle Scouts.

If you are looking for a challenging yet fun and rewarding Scouting experince, we hope you'll consider Tay House.
