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!
