Welcome !

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.  Although we had a phenomenal summer - between Summer Camp and the Bi-annual Maine Canoe Trip - we are looking ahead to an equally exciting new Scouting Year.

So join us and, WELCOME to Troop 44!

How do I know what requirements I still need to advance?

This is a question we like to hear from scouts, because it means that they are taking an active role in their scouting.  Let me provide the answer to that question.

In the top left of your screen, you should see the USER section.  Please click on "My Profile" When that opens up, your current rank will appear in parentheses next to your name.  Click on your current rank.  This will take you to the screen that shows what is completed, and what still needs to be done.  This page is updated after every Troop meeting.  Any questions or problems, please reach out to an adult leader. 


The FIRST requirement for the upper ranks, Star, Life & Eagle states "Be active in your troop for at least ... months"  This means attending Troop meetings, going on camping trips, and fulfilling the responsibilities of your Position of Responsibility.  The Troop expectation is that you attend at minimum 50% of monthly meetings and camping trips.

Scouting News

Posted by akaufmann on Oct 5 2017 - 7:14pm

   Lord Baden Powell had a way with words.  He said, “Scouting is a game for boys under the leadership of boys under the direction of men.”  It’s true!  Providing boys with the opportunities to learn, have fun and demonstrate leadership is what Scouting is all about.  Along the way, boys learn and grow, develop mental, physical and emotional fitness, learn about good citizenship, and learn how to become independent and capable young men.

There is no “Scouting” without “outing”:   we base our program on monthly camping trips.  Much of the initial focus for new Scouts is on learning outdoor skills and the ability to take care of oneself.  It is a growth opportunity for both boys and parents… one that can only be achieved if the boys (and parents) are present to take advantage of those opportunities.  Regular participation in outings is critically important to overall success in Scouting.

Registering for Events

Posted by akaufmann on Sep 24 2017 - 4:25pm

For Troop events it is important to know who is attending. That's why you must sign-up on the website before registration for the event ends and attend the Troop Meeting prior to the event.

If you cannot make the troop meeting prior to the event you must notify the Senior Patrol Leader.

These items are required for Planning and Logistic purposes. So sign up now and be an active member of Troop 44.
