Camp Richard - Nantucket, Massachusetts Aug 16-20, 2023 was a great success!

The Troop's first ever trip to Nantucket and everyone had an amazing time over the 5 day/4 nights we camped on the island.  We biked almost 50 miles during the week, took the boys surf fishing, visited the Maria Mitchell Observatory for an evening of astronomy, spent some time at the Nantucket aquarium, toured the Whaling museum, shopped and dined with ice cream, caught a movie at the Dreamland theatre, enjoyed the beaches, had camp fires at night, and just too much more to list.  I am sure this will become a regular camping destination we will revisit in the future summers to come!

Scoutmaster's Corner

Welcome to Troop 27's 2021-22 Boy Scout program.  I am excited and thrilled to kick-off another exciting year of Scouting at Troop 27 this year!  

 It is not possible for one leader to make this program a success for your children - so PLEASE volunteer to help us.  It takes the dedication & help of dozens of parents to help out as Adult Leaders, Committee Members, and Event Volunteers. The Boy's have planned  a number of fantastic events for the Scouts this year!

Yours in Scouting
