Boy Scout Troop 146, which meets at the United Methodist Church in West Hartford, will hold open houses in October and November.
Boy Scout Troop 146 will have open houses on Thursday, Oct. 5 and Thursday, Nov. 16, from 7:15 to 8:30 p.m. for Webelos Cub Scouts as well as any youth interested in joining Boy Scouts.
Boy Scouts is available to youths 11 years of age and up or who have completed fifth grade. Troop 146 meets at West Hartford United Methodist Church, 1358 New Britain Ave. (the “pumpkin church” across from Wolcott Park).
Troop 146 is committed to teaching life skills, character development and outdoor skills through scouting. We want our scouts to know how to read a map (not just Google Maps), to read their Scout Handbook rather than just their Facebook, and have the chance to listen to bird tweets in the forest instead of reading Tweets on their phone.
Troop 146 activities include monthly camping trips, summer Boy Scout camp, hiking trips to the White Mountains and the Adirondacks, canoeing trips, Philmont Scout Ranch, and Seabase in the Florida Keys.
