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. Please join us at one of our Troop meetings, select "Troop 2 Information" at the left for more information. The main contents of this website are password protected.

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

Eagle Scout Project Showcase

The Eagle Project Showcase offers more than 100 ideas and examples of real Eagle Scout projects completed by Scouts. Each project includes a photo and details on the challenges faced in the completion of that particular project. It’s information that other Scouts will find valuable as they weigh the potential difficulties in their own Eagle project ideas. http://eagleprojects.boyslife.org/

Calling all Trip Masters..... 
I have started to compile a Master Trip Master book.  So far I have 3 events listed.  If you have been a trip master in the recent past, please email me any information on what you did to organize/plan the trip so I can add it to the book.  You can take a look at the information I have so far.  The document is located under Home -> Files -> Trip Master Files & Ref. Guide (http://www.troop2milford.org/taxonomy/term/1175) and is called Master Trip Master
