Snow and Summer 2022

The troop recently went on winter camping and backpack trips. Please visit the Photos Tab section to review pictures from those outings. Yes, the picture of the thermometer is unaltered and accurate -it was six degrees below zero on our freeze out. It’s also time to finalize troop plans for the summers, so please review the materials sent out recently regarding our plans for the summer of 2022. Additional information can also be found under the Summer 2022 section on this page. To summarize, the Troop will be heading back to Camp Resolute for our regular week of camp. The Troop is also slated to go on a High Adventure trip in Maine in the summer. Please consult with Mr. Comisky regarding any questions you may have for either event.

Myles Standish Bike Trip

The Troop will head to Myles Standish State Forest for a fall bike trip, heading down the night of Oct 1st and returning Oct 3rd. We’ll use Camp Squanto as our base and hit the paths to explore Myles Standish. The forest is part of the Atlantic coastal pine barrens ecoregion and consists largely of pitch pine and scrub oak forests—at 26 square miles (67 km2), one of the largest such forests north of Long Island. The forest surrounds 16 lakes and
ponds, including several ecologically significant coastal kettle ponds. Additional information and permission slip can be found under the Campout and Event Information section.

National Public Lands Day – West Hill Dam 9/25/21

The troop has volunteered to participate at West Hill Dam on Sept. 25th from 8:30 to 2:00. West Hill has been the site of many scouting events for Troop 4 and Pack 4 and it’s time to give back. Please let Mr. Comisky know as soon as possible if you’ll be attending with the troop so that the Park Rangers can plan accordingly.

Medical Forms and Dues

Please pass in your medical forms and dues as soon as possible. Contact Mr. Comisky or Mr. Bogner with any questions.

The combined troop and re-charter dues this year are $155 per scout ($135 for additional siblings).  This fee combines the Troop dues; the annual BSA National Registration fees and subscriptions which increased this year, as well as the Mayflower Council program activity fee, which was raised last year.. 

Please drop off your check at the start of the troop meeting. If your son(s) can’t make the meeting but would like to continue in the troop, please mail the dues to the Troop Treasurer, Mr. Tony Bogner.  Please make all checks payable to Troop 4.
