Joining Troop 25
Adventure is calling! Troop 25 is accepting new Scouts in grades 5-8 who are interested in participating regularly in the fun, adventure, and learning activities of Scouting.
Joining Night Sept. 17, 2019
Prospective parents of boys in grades 5-8 who are interested in learning more about Troop 25 can attend a special Joining Night presentation on Tues., Sept 17 at 7 p.m. at Center Congregational Church, 11 Center Street, in Manchester.
Scout leaders and current parents will be on hand to answer questions and provide a presentation about the unique Troop program and benefits for Scouts. Space is limited.
To register, please contact Jeff Kennard at
(860) 960-6599 or jeffBSA25@gmail.com
A boy may join the Troop if he is at least 11 years old, or will be 11 before the end of the year, or he is in the fifth grade as a minimum. Troop 25 does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, sexuality, color, or national origin.
When do Scouts typically join the troop?
A boy can join Troop 25 at any time during the year. Typically, the Scouting program for new recruits begins in March of each year.
Can older boys join?
We also welcome older boys who have an interest in Scouting. Contact us for details.
What if we don’t live in Manchester?
Scouts are not required to live in Manchester. Scouts from nearby towns are also active in the Troop.
How does Scouting work with school and athletic team commitments?
The Troop understands that Scouts and parents lead busy lives. Many active Scouts balance their commitment between the Troop and school or club athletic teams. While sometimes a game or meet will conflict with a Scout event, we ask that the Scout give the Troop an equal amount of time and consideration when planning extra curricular activities.
