About Us

Troop 320 is an active Boy Scout Troop in the Town of Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina.  We are a unit within the Black River District of the Occoneechee Council.

Originally chartered in 1951, Troop 320 has been continually serving Fuquay-Varina for the past 40 years. It has been awarded the Quality Unit award for the past 39 years.

Troop 320 goes by the "Orange Crush" nickname, a reference to the color of their hats and the colors of Fuquay-Varina High School. This name was given to them by fellow troops as 320 arrived at summer camp in a very large, old and crinkled orange school bus many years ago.  A tradition of the troop is to hand out cans of Orange Crush soda to other scouts at summer camp.

Join our troop.  We will be meeting in the Centrum  at 100 Judd Parkway SE, Fuquay Varina from 7:30 PM until 9:00 PM.

There are granite rock domes with 300-ft. cliffs, deep gorges, broad valleys, bogs, trout streams and many waterfalls. There are more than 30 miles of maintained and marked trails. Oh, and its a bear sanctuary so we may see some black bears.

Return: Late afternoon or early evening on Sunday, 8/25 (It all depends on the route we plan an how early we get on the road on Sunday).

Misc. Details:

  • We'll cover 10 - 15 miles over the course of the weekend (maybe more depending on route selection)
  • Bag dinner for Friday night. Backpacking type meals by patrol on the trail. Money for lunch on the way home.
