Boy Scout Troop 205 meets weekly on Monday nights in Newton Center, MA

We were chartered in 1911, just one year after the Boy Scouts of America began. We are among the oldest continuously chartered Boy Scout troops in the country.

In addition to our weekly meeting, in a typical year we will:

  • Camp overnight several times at Nobscot Scout Reservation in Framingham / Sudbury

  • Go on a winter trip to Vermont

  • Go overnight camping in the summer at Camp Yawgoog in Rhode Island

  • Go hiking in the area

  • Go to Merit Badge College

  • As well as go on many other outings.

Boy Scouting is for boys who are 11, or are at least 10 years old and have completed the fifth grade or have earned the Cub Scout Arrow of Light Award, through 17 years old. Boys experience a vigorous outdoor program and peer group leadership with the counsel of an adult Scoutmaster to achieve the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness. Camping, fun with friends -- and more. It’s the adventure of a lifetime.

Give your son a valuable gift by encouraging him to join Boy Scouting today. The time you invest in him today will make a difference in the person he becomes tomorrow.
