The West Hartford Scouting Expo will be held on Saturday, Sept. 11 on the lawn of Town Hall.
Hiking, camping, cycling, sailing, first aid, civic engagement, and life skills and leadership training are all part of the scouting experience, and the community is invited to learn more about opportunities available at a Scouting Expo scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 11, from 1-4 p.m. on the grounds of West Hartford Town Hall.
Programs are open to West Hartford youth in grades K-12, who attend public school, private school, or are home schooled – and are for girls as well as boys. Cub Scout programs are available for grades K-5, while Scouts BSA is for those in grades 6-12. Some troops/packs are co-ed, while others are boys- or girls-only programs.
Each troop or pack will have a fun display to show off scouting, said Heidi-Anne Mooney, assistant scoutmaster for Troop 146. Her troop will have a gear display with packs, tents, lanterns, and stoves, while other troops will have exhibits on another first aid, and pioneering – using lashing and poles to create structures – and other scouting activities.
More information about scouting in West Hartford can be found on the BSA website.
