We're happy you decided to check out our Troop. There is a lot of information on our website. We suggest that you start with the New Scouts section, which will give you lots of information about Boy Scouts and how our Troop is organized. You can check out the Calendar to see all the cool trips we are planning.  Although we are a Boy-Led Troop, we need adults to deliver the best program we can. There are many opportunities to volunteer - driving, chaperoning, acting as a merit badge counselor, helping out the committee to do the background work so that all the events happen. Check out our Parents section for more information.  We always have a great time during summer camp at Camp Mattatuck.  Scouts who have gone to SeaBase or National Jamborees will tell you how amazing those experiences are.  We always look forward to our next great scouting adventure, and we hope you can be part of it!

So join us and, WELCOME to Troop 44!

Thank you

I think we all agree that the members of the PLC deserve a THANK YOU for their leadership this year.

Our way of doing this is with the end of year PLC event.

Mr. Theriault deserves a special Thanks for organizing the event, and Mr. Bach, Mr. Bouvier, Mr. Hubbard and Mr. Strong for running the event, and contributing to a good Scouting year! 

Summer Camp 2021 Update

Posted on Jun 5 2021 - 10:35pm

I'm hoping that by now you are excited for summer camp.  A couple of things that need to be done ASAP.

We will be hosting a Zoom meeting next week to answer your questions regarding camp. 
1) If you haven't already, your completed BSA health form needs to be given to Mr. Hubbard, parts A-D.  The form can be downloaded from the website or you can click here for it..
2) The balance for summer camp must be paid.  The total cost of camp is $460.  If you already paid the $50 deposit, please get the remaining $410 to Mr. Donovan at 50 Linnard Rd. any questions you can contact him at gdonovan4@att.net
3)  As of the last safety update from Council, they are recommending that scouts follow the buddy system.  The two scouts should be tent mates, and try to do all the daily activities together, merit badge classes etc.  Attached is the merit badge schedule for scouts to look over and make a plan.  You can see the list of who is attending camp on the website, under the sign up list for summer camp.  I have sent out a link to a google form that scouts will use to identify their tent mate and what badges they wish to sign up for.  It is recommended that scouts sign up for 2-3 badges.  Scouts that are First Class or higher may sleep in a hammock, but still need to have a tent, to keep gear in, use in case of rain, etc.
Any questions, please email them my way.
