Welcome to the Troop 272 members-only Web portal!

Have you ever:   Taken the controls of a real airplane in flight?  Or climbed a 200 foot high rock face?  Driven a motorboat?

                            Backpacked the presidental range?  Gone skeet shooting with friends? Learned to Sail?  Tested your survival skills?


We have.  And you can too!  Join us!

Scouting is a program for boys (ages 11-18) that challenges you to take your life to the next level.  In Boy Scouts, you will participate in fun and out-of-the-ordinary activities in a safe way with experienced leaders.  Ever hiked a mountain in winter?  Climbed Mount Washington?  Spent days with friends in the wilderness living out of your pack?  You will in boy Scout Troop 272.

In addition to just having fun, you’ll also learn skills – skills that will allow you to develop a “can-do” attitude that you won’t get by participating in the usual list of school sponsored activities. Through a constant series of monthly outdoor adventures, community service projects, and team-based activities, you will accomplish things that you might not currently imagine are possible for you.  It will be the adventure of your life and give you a solid foundation upon which you can enter the world as a confident and empowered adult.

Many of our countries greatest men built their foundations in Boy Scouts – presidents, astronauts, explorers, religious and political leaders, and even TV personalities like Mike Rove (Dirty Jobs) and Bear Grylls (Man vs. Wild) all started in Boy Scouts.

So come and join us. Do something awesome for yourself. You’ll look back years from now and discover it was one of the best decisions of your life.

Scouting won’t just prepare you for life -- it will prepare you for an awesome life.

Hi Everyone, here is the merit badge college that Mr. Dugan mentioned during the troop meeting last Thursday.  There is a nice selection of badges and they can be completed in 3 Saturdaycourses in February and March. There are at least a couple of the boys from our troop going.  The meetings are held in Mason, NH so carpooling is suggested. Note that the application must be mailed in and received this week, so act fast if you want to participate.

Klondike Derby

Posted by roberttedwards on Jan 21 2017 - 8:45am

In case any of you haven't noticed, one of my personal quests to make scouting in our district more meaningful is to bring some new and fun stations to things like the Klondike Derby and Camporees. The result has been the development of the vehicle recovery station, last years awesome obstacle course, and this time a lumberjack station where scouts will use gigantic saws and team work to cut giant logs, split wood, etc.

Don't cheat yourself - Please plan to attend summer camp July 9th-15th

A college recruiter told me that colleges look for former boy scouts to fill their freshman class for a simpler reason then you might think.  It is primarily because these young men have experience living away from home, disconnected from their parents, taking care of themselves, and still getting work done – a rare commodity in today’s world.  That experience is exactly what you need to succeed your first semester of college.  And where does your son get the majority of this experience?   The answer is Summer Resident Camp.
