Welcome !


Leadership, Citizenship, Fitness, and Adventure: these are the benefits of Scouting. Open to boys who are 11 years old or have finished 5th grade, our monthly trips include canoeing, biking, fishing, and ice climbing. You'll learn life-saving outdoor skills, first-aid, and how to cook over an open fire. Scouts are trained to camp safely in all four seasons, and we focus on community service. 

The friendly and accepting environment enables boys to learn life skills, teach those skills to others, and follow a path toward leadership. We notice that our boys go on to be leaders in their schools, on their teams, and many achieve scouting's highest rank of Eagle. The boys have fun and grow into responsible men who excel in college and life.

  • 136 Eagle Scouts since 1965
  • 12 Scouts achieved Eagle during 2015/2016 scouting year

  • Boy-led Troop with SPL and ASPL leading the PLCs, Troop Meetings, and Trip Planning
  • Involved adult leaders (Committee and Asst. Scout Masters)
  • Two Scout Leaders attend National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT)
  • In June, two Scouts from our Troop (11th graders) attend the prestigious Massachusetts Boys State program sponsored by the American Legion.
