Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 2 - Milford, MA

 Celebrating 90 Years of Scouting

 1927 - 2017

Thank you for your interest in Milford, MA Boy Scout Troop 2. Troop 2 belongs to the Knox Trail Council, Cannon 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.

NEEDED - Merit Badge Counselor

Posted by mduffy on Jan 23 2017 - 10:29am

Hi Folks,
We are in need of merit badge counselors.  The merit badge counselor is a key player in the BSA advancement program. Whatever your area of expertise or interest, whether it is a special craft or hobby (basketry, leatherwork, coin collecting), a profession (veterinary medicine, aviation, engineering), or perhaps a life skill (cooking, personal management, communications), as a merit badge counselor, you can play a vital role in stirring a young man's curiosity about that particular topic. By serving as a merit badge counselor, you offer  your time, knowledge, and other resources so that Scouts can explore a topic of interest.  Please contact Michele Duffy (michele.duffy@comcast.net) for more information on how you can become a merit badge counselor
