Boy Scout
Troop 109

Westfield, MA

Welcome

FUN WITH A PURPOSE

Our Troop’s goal is to provide a fantastic program for our youth that delivers on the Mission of Boy Scouts of America. We call it “Fun with a Purpose”.

The Aims of Scouting are Growth in Moral Strength and Character; Participating Citizenship; and, Development of Physical, Mental and Emotional Fitness. 

Be Prepared

Our scouts participate in a broad range of progressively challenging activities. 

Each year we try to provide a “high adventure” trip for scouts who are old enough and experienced enough to handle these events. 

In the past we’ve done a lot of backpacking in Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire. We’ve done a 100 mile canoe trip in New York. We’ve attended the National Jamboree. And, we’ve backpacked in Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks in Utah, the Grand Tetons of Wyoming, and Sequoia National Park in California, Glacier National Park, the Grand Canyon, and Yosemite National Park.

Adult Leadership

The Troop Committee, the Scoutmaster and the Assistant Scoutmasters are responsible for the troop and its activities.  Responsibilities include: support and oversight of  the troops operations; assuring conformance to BSA Policies; training the Senior Patrol Leader and assuring the training of other Junior Leaders;  leading by example; and, assuring the boys’ safety.

Advancement

Advancement is a key part of the scouting, but not the only part, and not any more or less important than the other Methods of Scouting.  Each boy will be encouraged and helped to advance as fast and as far as he desires.  The ranks are Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life, and Eagle.
