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!

Happy Labor Day!

Troop 123 To Welcome Exchange Scout!

Posted on Sep 1 2014 - 10:08am

Troop 123 has been asked to 'host' an exhange scout for the year!  Ady is an exchange student that will be attending GHS this year as a junior and has been involved in scouting since he was 6.  As he stated on his student application, "being a scout is not just an activity, but a lifestyle".  Sixteen year old Ady is from the former Soviet Republic of Moldova and enjoys Basketball and other sports like Soccer and Tennis, speaks fantastic English as well as his native languages of Romanian and Russian, is an active Boy Scout and a top student, and also enjoys the piano.  He is a State Department sponsored scholarship winner, and competed with over 50,000 other teens to earn one of only 1,000 spots in the US!  We expect Ady to be at the first scout meeting on September 10th!
