The troop meets every week at Union Congregational Church in Upper Montclair, but is open to all boys age 11 and up—you do not need to be a member of the church. We are a very active troop, with about 50 boys participating currently in all ranks in the troop, from Scout to Eagle, and a dedicated, involved group of parents. We take part in all sorts of fun and exciting activities. The troop goes camping every month—rain, snow or sunshine! We also go hiking, skiing, canoeing, work on leadership skills, participate in Merit Badge Fairs and do many community service projects.
