Why Join Our Troop? Because Scouting is 3/4 Outing!

We are the oldest, most active troop in West Haven, having a history that spans over fifty seven years of fun, friendship and service to our community.

Our troop does monthly activities including camping, rifle shooting, archery, canoeing, swimming, hiking and more!  We have regular meetings where we practice for our outings by learning first aid, wilderness survival, maps and compass work, and earn rank. We are a twelve month troop - we meet and camp every month.

We have visited such places as Washington DC for week long adventure and learning. We even got into the White House for a close up view of the historic building. Scouts have planned and completed a 50+ mile wilderness canoe trip. Outings are planned by the scouts, for the scouts.

If you join our troop, you can run for leadership positions and influence where we go and what we do.
The adults aren't in charge, scouts are! Every scout, regardless of rank, has an equal say in what we do and where we go.

We meet every Thursday night, 7:00 to 8:30 PM in the basement of St. Lawrence Church.

Our troop is open to boys who are 11 through 17 years old, or 10 years old and have earned their Arrow of Light [Cub Scouting Award], or have completed the fifth grade.

Over 17? Troop 208 has also started a Venture Crew - for boys 15-20. Venturing is a high adventure version of Boy Scouts.

Our door is always open for visitors. We ask that you email one of our leaders first, to make sure we will be onsite when you visit, but is not mandatory. Their email links are located on the Leadership Page.
