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.
New Scout meetings for 5th through 8th grade boys begin Wednesday, March 6, 2024.
Boys in grades 5-8 who are interested in learning more about Troop 25 are invited to attend a New Scout meeting on Wednesday, March 6th from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. There will be a meeting for parents that will highlight the Troop 25 program during the same time. Families will have the chance to ask questions to Scout Leaders.
There will be four more New Scout meetings on Wednesday March 20th, April 3rd and April 17th, and May 1st. New Scouts will officially join the Troop at the Court of Honor ceremony on May 8th.
Meetings take place at Center Congregational Church, 11 Center Street, Manchester
New Scouts join the Troop in May at the Court of Honor and can participate in the Spring Trip in June and Summer Camp in August. For more information contact Scoutmaster Ed Dupont email@example.com or Assistant Scoutmaster Tom Villandry firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
