Troop Size
25 Total Scouts

Safety and Guidance
Youth protection and safety guidelines are strictly adhered.  At least 2 adult leaders are present at every outing. 

Campouts/Outings
Camp outs and outings are planned for each month during the school year.  Recent outings have been to Great Adventure Scout Weekend, hiking the Boston Freedom Trial, the Rhode Island Air Show, and several skill-building weekend camp outs.

Summer Camp
Our troop has been attending Yawgoog Scout Reservation for 20+ years.  This highly rated camp provides an excellent opportunity for learning scouting skills, advancement, and training.  Our annual summer camp week, which is generally the last week of July, is well attended by Scouts, parents, and adult leaders.

High Adventure
We conduct an annual High Adventure trip for the older Scouts (14 and above).  Recent high-advent
ure trips have taken us canoeing in Alaska, being the crew of our own 68 foot sail boat in the Bahamas, mountain climbing in Colorado, and hiking in the Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. 

 

Fund-Raising
We conduct several fundraisers during the year, with profits being directly assigned to the Scouts to be applied toward Scouting costs such as dues, summer camp, etc. An example of a fundraiser the Scouts participate in is the Popcorn Sales, thanks to Trails End®.

Parental Involvement
Parents are welome and encouraged to bring their skills and support to Troop 137.  Parental involvement has proven to have a direct affect on a scout's success in the Boy Scouting program.  All parents as encouraged to participate in Troop activities, though parental involvement is not a condition of your son's involvement in the troop.
