Originally chartered as Troop 3 in 1925 with the DeKalb County Council, in 1928 our number was changed from Troop 3 to Troop 33. High adventure activities have included Philmont, Florida Keys, and trips throughout the United States and beyond. High adventure activities have taken Scouts to 49 states and 20 foreign nations.
Major service projects took place responding to Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Ike and most recently Hurrican Sandy. Troop 33 has been featured in national magazines and in the recent book "Boy Scouts of America: a centennial history".
