POLICY OF NON-DISCRIMINATION

Troop 119 operates under the auspices of the Boston Minuteman Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The mission of the Boston Minuteman Council, Boy Scouts of America is to provide character development, citizenship training, growth in physical and mental fitness, and leadership opportunities for the young people of the Boston metropolitan area. We pride ourselves on the diversity of our members, and we are committed to providing young people with an educational and stimulating environment in which to learn and grow. Through the Scout Oath and Law, we pledge to respect all people and to defend the rights of others. Bias, intolerance and unlawful discrimination are unacceptable within the ranks of the Boston Minuteman Council.


The Boston Minuteman Council serves over 18,000 youth through 3,300 volunteers in over 330 Packs, Troops and other units without regard to color, race, religion, ethnic background, sexual orientation, or economic status. (Adopted July 19, 2001)


WELCOME NEW SCOUTS!!!

Welcome to all the New Scouts! We're glad that you chose to join 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. Don't miss the pictures - you may see some people you recognize in the Photos from the Webelos Camping Trip last November. 

Parents of New Scouts, welcome!  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, sitting on boards of review.  Check out our Parents section for more information.  (You can sneak a peak at the New Scouts section too!)

Even though it is only spring, we have our eyes on summer camp in August.  Most scouts go to at least one week of summer camp; many go to two.  Take a look at the Summer Camp page for more details.


Scouting is....

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

BSA Troop 119 serves boys in Lexington, MA and surrounding towns. Any boy between the ages of 11 and 18 is welcome to join us. We emphasize a strong program of camping and outdoor activities. Our troop home is:

Hancock United Church of Christ
1912 Mass Avenue
Lexington, Massachusetts
7:30 - 9 pm Thursdays during the school year

Contact Scoutmaster Todd Eckler for more information at 617-872-6035.


Are You a Troop 119 Eagle?
We are trying to reconstruct some of the history of Troop 119, which goes back to the late 1930's. If you earned your Eagle while registered to Troop 119 (or Troop 19 as it was known in the early days), we'd love to hear from you. Contact Mrs. Shevrin (gshevrin at gmail dot com)

Help Wanted
The goal in Troop 119 is to have every family involved in helping out at some level.  Please contact the Scoutmaster or any Committee member to find out what opportunities exist.
