Get Involved

Scouting helps develop youth to face the challenges of tomorrow, and that’s no small task. With programs devoted to acquiring outdoor skills and providing service to the community, Boy Scouts offers something for anyone who seeks personal growth and the satisfaction that comes from providing service to others. Get involved – today!

Boys

Ask a friend who’s a Scout (in Bolton Troop 1 or in any other troop), and you’re sure to hear about the great opportunities, challenges, and rewards that the Scout experience provides. Better yet, join us at a meeting and see first-hand what a great time you can have as a Boy Scout in Bolton.

Requirements? There are none! If you’ve completed fifth grade or are from age 11 to 17, just bring yourself (and your enthusiasm!) to Davis Hall at the First Parish of Bolton. The Troop meets every Tuesday during the school year from 7:00PM to 8:30PM. We’ll see you there!

Adults

Troop 1 Bolton is a boy-led troop, but that doesn’t mean there’s not room for parents to get involved! From helping with campouts (leading or driving, for example) to teaching merit badge classes in areas of interest or expertise (see the link below), to joining the Troop Committee, there is no limit to contributions you can make to your son’s troop.

Troop Meetings – Come and see what the Troop is all about. Troop meetings are held every Tuesday during the school year from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM in Davis Hall of the First Parish of Bolton on Main Street (Rte. 117) next to the Town Hall in Bolton, Massachusetts.

Troop Committee Meetings – The Troop Committee consists of adult volunteers and the Troop’s Scoutmaster, who together plan outdoor and community service programs, acquire camping equipment and training supplies, ensure that the Troop is financially sound, and more generally help guide the Troop’s path. Troop Committee meetings are held on the last Sunday of each month during the school year from 7:30pm to 9:00pm in Davis Hall of the First Parish of Bolton. All are welcome.

Teach a Merit Badge Class – Do you have a hobby or an avocation that you’d like to teach others? Photography? Bicycling? Perhaps you’re a chemist or an automobile mechanic. The Boy Scouts offer dozens of merit badges that provide Scouts with the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in areas of interest to them. Troop 1 Bolton is always looking for interested subject matter experts to help share their enthusiasm and knowledge. See http://meritbadge.org/wiki/index.php/Boy_Scout_Portal to get a better idea of the scope of merit badge offerings.

Fill Out a Brief Survey! – Our Parent Interest survey is a simple way for us to understand the ways in which you would like to help the Scouts in Troop 1 Bolton – and who knows, it might suggest ways of helping you’d never thought of! So please take a moment to complete the form and bring it to the next meeting. You can find the Parent Survey form at the bottom of this page.
