Welcome to Troop 1
Welcome to Northborough Troop 1. Founded in 1924, Troop 1 has been an active Scout Troop for over 85 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
The troop is attaneding the Knox Trail Freeze Out on January 20-22 2017. The Freeze Out is full of winter fun and outdoor skills to include:
- Scouting skills
- Cold weather camping/Winter survival skills
- Saturday night Cracker-Barrel
- Patrol themed events and competitions, awards
- Sled Race
The ever popular Mountain Man Trip will be held at the Webster Scout Reservation in Ashland, CT on Decemeber 2-4, 2016. We have reserved the Wpequapaug Site (Tent Site #5). The agenda for this trip is to have some Scout Skills competitions and generally just have fun camping. This is a new location for us, so we can explore and see someplace new that is not that far away. Come and practice your cold weather camping skills in preparation for the Freeze Out.
Scouting For Food
Thanks Northboro! Scouting For Food was a huge success this year! Over 11600 items of food were collected today. Thats over 5 tons of food! Troop 1 would like to thank all the Girl Scouts troops, Cub Scout Packs 25, 28 and 55 and Troop 101 for helping to make this year's event a record year! And most of all, thanks to everyone in the community that donated food.
Congratulations to PJ
Troop 1 would like to congratulate Peter Greenwood JR for obtaining the rank of Eagle Scout. PJ's Eagle Project involved installing benches at the Greendale YMCA. He completed his Eagle Board of Review on November 15th, 2016. He becomes Troop 1's 94th Eagle Scout.
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.
