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!

Exploration Merit Badge Emblem

Back in March of 2020 we started preparing for Exploration Merit Badge and our expedition was set to happen on the March 2020 camping trip, but COVID forced us to cancel that trip.  We are preparing to try again.  Our April 23-24 campout is our first real opportunity since the pandemic started to revisit our plans to be real-life explorers.

In order to prepare and plan, all those interested in earning this badge must attend the April campout and the planning Zooms scheduled for Monday, April 19th and Tuesday April 20th at 7pm (Tuesday is only needed if we don't complete our plans on Monday)  Regular plans for the campout will occur at the 4/21 outdoor troop meeting at Westmoor park.  The Planning Zoom invite will only be sent to those scouts signed up for the camping trip.  Don't attend the Zoom, if you are not interested in the badge.  You must attend and participate in the Zoom if you want to earn the badge.  Any questions, email me at wh.troop.44@gmail.com.

Jonathan Pincus' Eagle Project

Posted on Feb 25 2021 - 4:17pm

Hi Troop 44,

I’m Jonathan and I want you to come to my Eagle Scout Project. On the first day, we’ll build nest boxes for Westmoor Park, and on the second day, we will be digging holes to put the nest boxes in and then creating a Nest Box Area off of a trail. Spots are currently limited, so sign up quickly. For more information look at the sign-up pages for day one and day two. Also, if you have any questions, I’ll be at most virtual meetings or you can email me at jonathanpincus10@gmail.com

Looking forward to seeing you there,


We want your input
