Troop 410 Scouting troop for girls

Troop 410 is a BSA Scouting troop for girls ages 11 and up who like being active and outdoors.
We have Troop meetings weekly on Tuesday evenings and a weekend outing or campout every month. We do many service projects. Recently we participated in Scouting for Food to help stock the Woodbridge Food Bank. Girls from all surrounding towns are welcome.  Scouts in our Troop have diverse interests and have completed many merit badges in the past year, including First Aid, Mammal Study, Swimming, Kayaking,  American Business, Woodworking, Robotics and many more.

A few examples of recent weekend activities are:              
Our November outing started with a visit from NCAT (New Haven Coalition for Active Transportation) at our troop meeting to teach us about bike safety, bike maintenance and bike etiquette. On November 5 we embarked on a bike ride on the Farmington Canal Rail Trail. We were lucky to have perfect weather! It was beautiful with blue skies and fall foliage. We kept riding until around noon, when we stopped and had pizza. After lunch we headed back to our starting point where our parents picked us up. 

In January we spent a Saturday at the annual Klondike Derby. During the Viking-themed competition day our Scouts participated in several events. We built a shelter from objects found nearby, competed in tomahawk and knife throwing competitions, and sled races. We tested our Scouting skills during the orienteering challenge and fire building competition. 

Every year we attend Camp Sequassen, the Connecticut Yankee Council’s resident summer camp in New Hartford, CT. Scouts from all over New England come to the summer camp and stay for a week or more with their troop. While at camp you get to choose all sorts of fun merit badges. The camp also has a nice waterfront with many water-related merit badge choices, including Swimming and Fishing. All sorts of watercraft are available to paddle around the lake.

We have exciting plans for the months to come. Our February outing will be Interstellar Nights after dark tubing at Powder Ridge tubing park. In March we are planning a cabin camping and skiing weekend. We are also starting a hiking program to work towards a “High Adventure” hike. This will start with “mini-hikes” locally to test our gear and build our strength. 

Any interested girls are welcome to attend a troop meeting to see if it is for them. At this time, girls in 5th grade are welcome to join before the end of the year, allowing them to attend summer camp with the troop. For more information, please contact Enrene van Tonder (Scoutmaster) at vantonder77@gmail.com

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Troop 41 Scouting troop for boys

If you are a boy, age 11 or older, who likes the outdoors and enjoys learning new skills while having fun, we invite you to check us out!  We meet at our Troop Hall, within Congregation B'nai Jacob in Woodbridge, CT.  Boys from all surrounding towns are encouraged to join us. 

In a society where it’s easy to get caught up in the excesses of the modern world, scouting offers a real alternative to video games and MTV. We emphasize core human values and produce young men who are grounded in their sense of self and community.

Our Troop is fortunate to have a very dedicated and experienced team of adult leaders and a fantastic group of boys. The Scout Troop is nondenominational and inclusive of all boys while still fostering the ideals of the Jewish faith.
