We have a fun and action oriented program that recently won an award for annual and cumulative camping days. Our program includes outdoor skills and personal growth for young boys 11 to 18. The cost is low and we won't be asking you to buy any candy!
Bring your son and some of his friends to one of our Boy Scout Troop meetings. The meetings are on Friday unless we are camping that weekend. Meetings begin at 6:45pm at the Dane Street Church Basement. Entrance in rear of building.
Since 1915, Troop 2 has provided a challenging program for Beverly boys. Boy Scouting is an action oriented program designed to take place outdoors. Troop 2 has a dedicated Troop Committee that along with the Scoutmaster has organized a very active outdoors program. The hallmark of Troop 2 is its outdoor program. An outdoor activity, typically a campout, is planned every month of the year. We also attend a weeklong summer camp, the culmination of the scout year and the start of planning for the next year. The campouts give meaning and use to skills the scouts develop as they advance in rank and learn skills to earn merit badges. Our campouts are in the woods -- usually at local sites and not out of cars. They involve hiking in the site, carrying your gear / food / water and campfire cooking by patrol. These activities build self-reliance and self-confidence along with outdoor skills and know-how. Boy Scouts is the only youth organization we know of where it's largely run by the boys to enable them to gain responsibility and leadership experience while having fun.
