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.  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!

Bring your order form (or a picture of it) each week to the meeting to participate for the weekly prize.  The scout with the most orders from the previous week will win a prize. 

Friendly Tips

Stop by the neighbors you know well first.

Collect money during sales to make it easier for yourself when the popcorn has to be delivered.

Smile and introduce yourself.  Share why you are selling popcorn.   

Remember to say thank you even if you do not sell anything to a family.  Being polite now may lead to a sale next year.

Have your parents take it to work.  Even better go to where your parents work and sell to their co-workers.  

UNIFORM must be worn.
