We're happy you decided to check out our Troop. There is a lot of information on our website. We suggest that you start with the New Scouts section, which will give you lots of information about Boy Scouts and how our Troop is organized. You can check out the Calendar to see all the cool trips we are planning.  Although we are a Boy-Led Troop, we need adults to deliver the best program we can. There are many opportunities to volunteer - driving, chaperoning, acting as a merit badge counselor, helping out the committee to do the background work so that all the events happen. Check out our Parents section for more information.  We always have a great time during summer camp at Camp Mattatuck.  Scouts who have gone to SeaBase or National Jamborees will tell you how amazing those experiences are.  We always look forward to our next great scouting adventure, and we hope you can be part of it!

So join us and, WELCOME to Troop 44!

Sandro Gaudio Eagle Project Announcement

Posted on Aug 7 2020 - 4:37pm

Hello All, 


I hope everybody is well after what has transpired in the last couple of days. 


As you all know, my eagle scout project was scheduled to be this weekend, but as a result of the storm and power outage, multiple fallen trees have blocked access routes to the project site, the site itself has lost power, fallen power lines are lying around everywhere creating a serious safety hazard, and the current predicament has also left us unable to transport cement to the site for the time being. Due to this, I have decided to be safe and postpone the project until next weekend; August 15th-16th. The times will remain the same; Saturday from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM, and Sunday from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM. 

Please contact me at sandrogaudio8@gmail.com with any questions you might have. Thank you so much for your flexibility and understanding.
