Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 2 - Milford, MA

Thank you for your interest in Milford, MA Boy Scout Troop 2. Troop 2 belongs to the Knox Trail Council, South District. Established in 1927, we are one of the oldest, continuously serving Troops in the region. Troop 2 is a boy-led, adult-advised Troop. All of the programs are planned and executed by the Boy Scouts themselves, with experienced adult leaders available to advise and ensure that all activities are conducted in a safe manner. The main objective of the Troop is to encourage and support the scouts as they develop the lifelong skills of citizenship, leadership and self-reliance, while having lots of fun along the way.

Scottish Highlands Trek 2016

Posted by bdonahue on Feb 14 2015 - 7:06pm

Troop 2 is in the early stages of planning for a return visit to Inverness, Scotland where we will tour around the Scottish Highlands. During our time in Inverness, scouts will live with a host family from the 3rd Inverness (Crown) Scout Troop and we will participate in many joint activities with the Crown Scouts. Troop 2 has travelled to Scotland on two prior occasions, and we have hosted the Scots here in Milford on two prior occasions. Tentatively our plan is to travel in late June / early July 2016, and we may include a few days in London or another major European city on our way to Scotland. The total cost of the trip is highly dependent on the cost of airfare, but we estimate that the trip will be approximately $1,800 per person.   We are now beginning to plan some fundraising events for the trip. Scouts who participate in fundraising can apply the funds to either the Scottish Highlands Trek or, if the scout does not participate in the Scotland trek, to summer camp in 2016. More information will be coming soon on fundraising opportunities for the scouts.  Informational meetings will be held for Scouts and for Parents later this spring to discuss the trip in more detail.

Scotland 2016 Planning Committee

Posted by bdonahue on Jan 8 2015 - 9:52pm

Troop 2 is currently forming a planning committee to make arrangements for Troop 2's visit to Inverness, Scotland in summer 2016, where we will visit our friends in the 3rd Inverness (Crown) Scout Troop. Our scouts will stay with host families in Inverness who have a scout in their Troop, and we will participate in many joint activities with the Crown Scouts, as well as activities on our own as we tour around the Scottish Highlands. Troop 2's association with the Crown Scout Troop goes back many years, with each Troop hosting the other on several international adventures. The Crown Scouts visited Troop 2 in 2002, 2005 and 2008, and Troop 2 visited Scotland in 2003 and 2011. If you're interested in participating in the planning committee, please contact Brian Donahue to let him know. Our first planning meeting will be scheduled in February.
