Boy Scouts of America

Welcome! Thank you for taking a look at our troop! We are a medium-sized, 
boy-led troop with lots of energy and enthusiasm.

Troop Size:

42 boys and many active adult volunteers for support

Charter Organization

Troop 437 is proudly chartered by the American Legion Post 437.  The Legion post gives the troop access to a wonderful facility with a function hall, large open outdoor spaces, and a waterfront.  As a key part of the boy scout program is developing good citizenship the troop also benefits from close ties to our country's veterans.

Meeting time/place:

Thursday nights from 7-8:30 p.m. held at 
American Legion Post #437, 
114 Dunstable Rd., Westford, MA

Patrols:

Our mixed-age patrols allow for boys to grow in their responsibility within the patrol while making friends with boys of all ages.

Weekly Meetings:

Include skill building, trip planning, service projects, and frequently time for a game at the end.

Monthly Trips:

Troop 437 plans and runs monthly outings.  We go camping, hiking, biking, kayaking, and sailing.  We go zip-lining and white water rafting.  We frequently go to Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.  We also hold City Trips to New York City. See our web site for details on the trips planned for upcoming months.

High Adventure

Crews from Troop 437 have traveled to Seabase and Philmont which are BSA National High Adventure bases.  We are starting the planning for another High Adventure trip in 2018 and expect trips to happen approximately every 2 years based on interest.

Costs:

$50 troop dues  per year collected in the fall which helps cover troop operating costs.  In addition $26 for BSA registration is collected.  Trip costs are collected on a trip by trip basis depending on the nature of the activity.

Fundraising:

We hold a spring bike and sporting goods sale to cover the operating costs of the troop.  In the fall we offer popcorn and cookie dough sales for scouts who want to raise money for their scouting related expenses.
