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

Scouting for Food

Posted by ggrosner on Oct 23 2017 - 7:21pm

Hello Scouts,

It is the time of year again for Scouting for Food! This is an important service project as our Boy Scout Oath tells us "To Help Other People at All Times" and our Scout Slogan tells us to "Do a Good Turn Daily". Door tags and distribution routes will be handed out at our Troop meeting this Thursday. Tags should be placed on the doors (not mailboxes) of the houses on your route this Saturday or Sunday (10/28 or 10/29). The door tags will ask residents for donations for the Westboro Food Pantry. The door tags explain that the donations will be picked up on the following Saturday 11/4 (The pick up will be done by a Westboro Boy Scout Troop). Please email me at dlowy67@townisp.com after you have finished distribution of your door tags.
