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.

As many of you may know we will be mowing the lawn at Whip-Or-Whil on Saturday 9/10/16 and Saturday 9/17/16 at 9:00 AM. Every year our troop makes this commitment to help out. We will be doing several things at the camp including mowing the lawn (must be 14 or older to use lawnmowers), raking out small areas, and picking up trash. We need adults to volunteer their lawn mowers for us to use (please include whether your lawnmower has a 2-stroke or a 4-stroke engine if you are letting us borrow it).

Michael Phelps Wears Levis in the Pool?

Posted by MrT on Aug 22 2016 - 4:13pm

Wouldn't it be strange if one of the guys in this picture was wearing jeans and had a 10 pound weight strapped to him as he was about to start the race?  No one in their right mind would do that right? But that is exactly what happens every backpacking trip we go on!!!  Inevitably, at least one or two guys show up loaded down with city clothes (jeans, sweatshirts, and heavy coats) that add 10 pounds to their pack, take up a ton of room in their bag, and make their probably of an enjoyable experience 0%.
