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!

New and Different Meeting Plans Developed - MUST READ!

Posted on Dec 14 2014 - 9:01am

On Friday night of last week, Xavier, Ethan E., Ethan T. and Ryan M. worked VERY hard with a few adult leaders and developed activities and/or themes for the scout meetings in 2015 from January through June.  The focus will be our traditional 'hands on' and 'new and different' approaches.  Special thanks to Mr. Hunter for facilitiating.  Check out the varied activities, focus on meetings outside of the church so we don't get cabin fever too easily, and attempts to make Troop 123 ANYTHING but boring.  These meetings will be described in further detail during the weekly e-blasts.  Because some are weather dependant, there will likely be some moving around here and there of topics or dates. For all of the scouts, remember that this is YOUR troop.  Bring your ideas and enthusiasm to Xavier or the adult leaders for other ways to keep Troop 123 a superfantastic group!
