Boy Scouts


 Troop 6 is the oldest active Boy Scout troop in Nashua. With our age and tradition, comes a new look and vision. Troop 6 has a strong group of adult leaders who are committed to the Boy Scout program and who are equally concerned with youth protection and safety.

The goal of Troop 6 is to teach each scout how to be a leader and that means the responsibility of running the troop falls to the older scouts. The Senior Patrol meets with the troop and plans activities for meetings and weekend activities like camping and hiking. The adult leaders and parents help with suggestions and to facilitate arrangements for the boys such as transportation and camping reservations.

Activities

Troop 6 meets once a week at the Main St. Methodist Church to learn new scouting skills, work on merit badges, plan activities, and have fun.

Once a month the boys in the troop plan a weekend activity. Recently, this has included:

  1. Orienteering competition at Nobscot Scout Reservation in Sudbury, MA
  2. Week-long summer camp stay at the Hidden Valley scout camp
  3. Bicycle trips in Franconia Notch and on the Nashua River Rail Trail
  4. Canoeing and kayaking
  5. Camping on an island in the middle of Boston Harbor
  6. Camping at Scout camps in Jaffrey, Raymond, and Manchester
  7. Competing in the Klondike Derby
  8. Indoor rock climbing
  9. Attending baseball and hockey games

Joining requirements

A boy can become a scout if he has completed 5th grade or is 11 years old. If he is a Cub Scout, he can join when he earns his Arrow of Light and crosses over from his Pack.
