Hello and welcome to Troop 4 in Lakeville, MA.

A little information about Boy Scouts and our troop … Boy Scouts is designed for boys ages 11 - 17 years old. There are many aspects to the Boy Scout program including learning life skills like first aid, personal management, personal fitness, camping, fire building and many other different outdoor skills. The program works with a ranking / advancement system designed to develop over time, whether a boy joins at 11 years old, or even at 14 years old. An important aspect of the Boy Scout program is to teach leadership skills at all levels and ages, up to and including Eagle Scouts. We try to teach the boys basic to advanced leadership skills and help shape our future leaders of America. The adult leadership of any Boy Scout program generally has a variety of backgrounds and knowledge to share with the boys. Most of the meetings are done during the school year each week, with a weekend camping trip once a month or so. The troop activities are usually planned by the boys on a semi-annual basis and as we say, the troop is a Boy Led Troop, with adult guidance throughout the year. The troop also does many community service projects either through coordinated efforts by the boys, or local organizations reaching out for assistance.
We attend summer camp for at least a week each year, and have some dedicated troop leaders attend the entire week with the boys. We let the boys choose which camping adventure they would like to do as well.
The troop is sponsored by Sts. Martha & Mary Parish in Lakeville at 354 Bedford Street, Lakeville, MA 02347.
