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.

I had two thought provoking conversations the other night – one was advice I gave Matt Zoerb during a scoutmaster conference (my last scoutmaster conference and his first) and the other took place at our troop committee meeting.

Start thinking about when you are free to camp!

As your troop membership changes every year, so should your annual program plan. 
Lately I've been detecting that "most of the troop is free weekend x" decisions we made 4 years ago are no longer true.  With those assumptions invalidated, maybe things like a big trip in June or even the annual date of summer camp will have to change based on the availability of your members.

June Canoe Trip Canceled!

The canoe trip has been canceled since too few scouts signed up.  Permission slips and checks are being returned for those that did sign up.

Thank You Flag Volunteers!

Thank you to all of the scouts, parents, and siblings who came out to help place and/or pickup flags at St. Louis Cemetery the past two Saturdays.
