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!

This Week's Meeting - April 22nd, 2015

Posted on Apr 20 2015 - 10:57am

This week's meeting will be at the NB Community Church.  Mr. Hunter will bring the supplies needed to finish off his teaching of the Fire Safety Merit Badge.  For those scouts that started this already, don't forget to work on your home evacuation plan and a list of potential home hazards.  For any scout that hasn't started this, don;t worry - you can jump right in! For the new scouts, try to remember to bring your scout books so we can review the Scout badge requirements and look ahead at what future requirements are all about!

2015 Chuckwagon was SUPERFANTASTIC

Posted on Apr 13 2015 - 3:30pm

THANK YOU to all of the adults and scouts of troop 123 that were able to participate in this year's Chuckwagon.  This year the course had to be modified quite a bit due to the limited travel around Long Pond but the early reviews are that it was one of the BEST in recent memory.  In no particular order, thanks to Mr. LaPointe for helping to staff Manning Hall full time and to be the official scorekeeper with Mr. Estano.  Thanks to Mr. Young for keeping the adults (too) well fed, and to Mr. Reitter for helping staff the campsite, as well as Mrs. Hughes who spent her birthday helping out!  We also had other adults stop in and help out where they could, and who could forget Mr. Hunter who ROCKED the colonial outfit and provided great instruction on the use of the 10-gauge cannon, not to mention countless smiles (and groans) he provided to the Cub Scouts with his comedy routine.  To all of the scouts that ran the station, GREAT JOB!  Council and everyone else was very impressed with the organization and scout spirit that Troop 123 demonstrated at this district event.
