Mass Jam 2018

Troop 1 will be participating in Mass Jam this Columbus Day weekend. This is a statewide Jamboree. 6000 plus scouts from all over New England will be attending this event on the Barnstable Fairgrounds. Mass Jam does not occur very often (once every four years or so). Most scouts only get one or two chances to attend this event as a scout. It should be a great time as Scouts get to explore Rock Climbing, TOmahawk throwing, Geocaching, Archery and other fun all based around a STEM theme. All the Webelos in Northboro are welcome to join Troop 1 at this great event. Cost for the event is $45 is paid before September 16th, $55 if paid afterwards.

March 16-18 Campout and Hike

On March 16 - 18 we will be returning to JN Webster Norcross Scout Reservation. We will also be renewing the 6 Peaks of New England hiking series. Granted, Jerimoth Hill isn't much of a climb or overly strenous hike, but it is the highest point in Rhode Island. We'll head over to the trail head for the short hike and be back in time for lunch and an afternoon of scout skills. It will be a great first campout for our new scouts. 

 

JN Webster Camping Trip

Bring your cards, games, footballs of either type, frisbes or just a funny story to share around the camping TV. 
 

 

Acadia National Park

Troop 1 is headed back to Acadia National Park this October. We'll be climbing, hiking and stargazing. We are headed there over the Columbus day weekend. Scouts have a choice of hiking or climbing. The troop has visited the park in the past and the event is back by popular demand.
