Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 123!

 Troop 123 Mission and Purpose


Our mission is straightforward: to help our scouts understand, achieve, and maintain the Aims of Scouting. These aims are to develop future leaders of strong character, good citizenship, and physical, mental, and moral fitness. We want our scouts to actively participate in and seek to understand what the goals and purposes of scouting are all about - in a positive and safe environment.                

Troop activities are meant to provide our Scouts with an opportunity to develop and test new skills, to learn about the outdoors, and to work together as patrols. Patrols and the   troop are led by youth leaders (Scouts) requiring cooperation, teamwork, and organization. The Scoutmaster, his assistants, and all of the adult leaders provide oversight and guidance, as well as positive adult examples. Our advancement program challenges Scouts to learn new skills, and to gain self-confidence and recognition for their achievements along the way.

Any boy (from any town) between the ages of 11 and 18 can join the troop at anytime. We meet Wednesday evenings at the New Boston Community Church - stop by to check us out. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to check out our website or email Scoutmaster Tom Lazott with questions or ideas for our Troop (scoutmaster@newboston123.mytroop.us).   Thank you for visiting!
