Welcome to Troop 34
Scouting is rewarding and enjoyable experience. You will watch yourself grow in many ways and receive a wider range of opportunities and experiences than is available in other youth organization, while still having fun.
The aim of Boy Scouting is to build character, foster citizenship and develop moral and physical fitness. We use the outdoors to teach boys to share responsibilities and to live with one another. This is where the skills learned and practiced during the troop meetings are utilized. If you ask the boys why they want to be in Scouts, a majority will answer that they want to go hiking or camping. Scouting uses this interest in the outdoors to help boys learn independence, gain self-confidence in themselves, and learn to appreciate the world we share. 3/4 of Scouting is Outing! Troop 34 tries to go on camping trips almost every month of the year.
Scouting provides great opportunities for those wishing to pursue advancement. While we're proud of our Eagle Scouts; we recognize that the majority of the scouts are involved for the fun and adventure that comes with scouting. We strive to provide a positive scouting experience for our scouts at every level. Each scout advances at his own pace and parents should not worry if there are scouts advancing faster than another. Our troop?s adult leadership is there to assist each scout with advancement when he is ready and we will help him reach his goals.
The troop consists of the boys under the watchful eyes of the Scoutmaster, Assistant Scoutmasters and the Troop Committee, which is responsible for administrative matters. The boys are organized into patrols. The patrols are led by the Senior Patrol Leader who is elected by the entire troop.
Troop meetings are held on Tuesday nights from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the First Congregational Church on High Street in Hanson.
We would be honored to have you join us on this scouting adventure and it would be a privileged to be able to work with you and help you develop into a strong young leader. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the troop at any time.
