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!

Jed Sink's Eagle Project

Posted on Oct 18 2020 - 6:30am

Hi all, Jed here. It's about time I conduct my eagle project.

My project is in service to the Quaker Lane Co-op Nursery School and over two days we will be making two low benches and a planter for them. The first day will only be staining wood and the second day will be putting together all 3 of the structures. I suggest to bring clothes you don’t care too much about on the first day as they could easily be stained. Rubber gloves and brushes will be provided on the first day but if you can bring any of your own it is appreciated. On the second day we will also ask that you bring work gloves of your own if you can but if not we have some available. The two days will be October 31 and November 1. As is normal, I also ask that you bring a mask and social distance at all times when you arrive. Lunch will be served and you should notify me of any existing food allergies beforehand. Any help you can give is greatly appreciated by me personally.

Faux-Camping Trip

Posted on Oct 18 2020 - 6:30am

Now that we as a troop, have gone to summer camp, albeit in October, it is time for our first official "Camping" Trip.

This will be a day trip, location TBD (probably Camp Workcoeman), from 7:00am to 7:00pm

The focus is fun for those that want it while simultaneously covering advancement requirements for those that need it.

We will pitch tents, cook meals, build fires etc.

At this time, due to COVID restrictions, we will NOT be meeting at the St Joseph parking lot.  Families will need to provide transportation to and from camp.
