Welcome to Troop 1
Welcome to Northborough Troop 1. Countinously chartered since 1924, Troop 1 has been an active Scout Troop for over 104 years. We've served the community and brought the ideals of scouting to our youth ever since
The Troop meets on Tuesday evenings, from 7:00 to 8:30pm at the Church of the Nativity. 45 Howard St. Northborough, MA
We will return to Wildcat Mountain for another skiing trip. However rather than staying in the Wildcat Lodge, we have arranaged a stay in a Conway NH hostel for the weekend. This will allow us to make this a nicer trip suitable to the whole family. We have a group of scouts interested in skiing at Wildcat. Another group of scouts will be doing some hiking on Saturday instead. Should be a fantastic trip. The trip will occur over the first week of the Feburary vacation, Feb 17th- Feb 19th.
Welcome new Scouts
Troop 1 would like to welcome our new scouts from Packs 28. We would like to welcome Ethan, Rocco, Satoshi and Liam. We look forward to seeing them do great things.

Troop 1 will return to Philmont for another backcountry High Adventure Trip in the summer of 2018.

Florida Seabase 2017
Troop 1 is currently planning an exciting High Adventure Trip to BSA Seabase Florida in the summer of 2017. The Troop has slots for two crews to attend the week of July 23. The Scouts unanimously expressed an interested in Scuba diving, and we will participate in the Scuba Adventure. To prepare for this, most of the Scouts and a few of the adults completed their SSI Open Water certification in August. Additionally, the crews are already planning Fundraising to support their adventure of a lifetime.
