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!

Ben Cohen-Tyler's Eagle Project

Posted on May 6 2021 - 6:07pm

Hey everyone, this is Ben Cohen-Tyler.  My eagle project will be on Sunday May 16th from 10AM to 3PM, in the parking lot at 45 Elizabeth St in Hartford.  We will be assembling and sanding materials for a set of wooden bleachers using a combination of handheld and electric powered tools.  Masks will be required at all times, and individually packaged lunches will be served around noon.  I ask that scouts bring work gloves if they have them, but if not we will have some extras on hand.  Mr. Hubbard will be providing safety goggles for everyone to use.  Click on the Eagle Badge to sign-up.  Hope to see some people there!

Hey Troop 44,
The first day of my Eagle project is coming up on May 8, we will be assembling play tables for the First Church Congregational. The day will consist of splitting up into groups and assembling the tables, I would appreciate the help from 7 scouts. Lunch and snacks will be individually wrapped and provided for each scout. Work gloves can be provided, but if possible please bring a personal pair. Masks are mandatory and in the case of one breaking, I will have extras. I hope to see you there.
For the second day of my Eagle project we will be staining the tables. We will split up and stain the tables. Gloves will be provided. Masks are required, and I will have extras in case of emergency. Once again I would appreciate the help of 7 scouts to complete this task. Lunch will also be provided.
On both days the work will occur at my house, 45 Brookline Drive.
Thank you,
Ethan Schuck
