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.

Reminder - scouts camp

When I look back on my youth scouting career, I remember at least a dozen campouts -- where we went to cool places, did exciting things, and I made real friends some of whom I still communicate with to this day.  I can't remember one troop meeting.
