Welcome !


For over 100 years, Scouting has provided an opportunity for youth to become involved in a program that teaches strong positive moral and ethical values, citizenship involvement and responsibility, and personal fitness in an environment that is family centered and fun for everyone. Scouting has been defined as "fun with a purpose".

Scouting provides opportunities for boys to experience one day, weekend, or week long camping programs, learn and explore their community, emergency preparedness, first aid, how to swim, teamwork, good sportsmanship, nature study, environmental awareness, and so much more.

Scouting is a great way to get a boy involved with boys of the same age in a program that has something for everyone, regardless of athletic ability, social, economic or ethnic background, and is a program that has lasting values for the rest of his life. The skills learned in Scouting stay with the person through their adult life, and many times those adults give back to the community from what they learned and experienced.

Finally, Scouting is a year round program and is always there for boys to return to who are involved in one or more seasonal sports. Scouting does not compete with other youth organizations; it works in harmony with them and the adult leaders of those organizations.

So, "Join the Scouting Adventure"! It will be one of the best decisions a family can make to help grow as a person and to learn values that last a lifetime.

Campfire Troop Meeting

Hike the Benjamin Tallmadge Trail CANCELED

Posted on Sep 28 2016 - 6:04pm

Due to the predicted weather for this weekend, I feel that this trip will not provide the experience that the boys should have.

Hiking in class A uniform, while wearing a poncho, getting wet and wind blown for 10 miles, arriving at camp, setting up, tents and cooking, cleaning up, breaking  down camp Sunday morning, and doing another 11 miles, with wet clothing and shoes,  The fun level will be low.  

While some troops may go and others like us will not. My decisions are based on the experience the boys will gain from this event. What will they learn and will they have fun doing it?  I  feel that the vast majority of the boys will not enjoy this trip, and if I ever mention the word hike again will never go on one.  Cold and wet scouts, make for some seriously unhappy boys.

Yours in Scouting,
