About Troop 246

Boy Scout Troop 246, was originally Chartered to the Woodbridge School PTA was formed in 1979, through the efforts of Ed DiSanto, Robert Wade, and Wilma Nanci. The troop is best described as an experienced troop that has developed depth in both the boy organization and the adult organization to aid it. The troop awarded its first Eagle Scout ranks in 1984. In 2009 our troop changed our sponsorship from Woodbridge School to American Legion Post 152.

The troop emphasizes personal development by participation in meetings, camping, outdoor activities, service projects, and Scout events such as Merit Badge academy, Camporees and Summer camp. We believe that the boys learn best by doing what they have decided to do. The Scoutmasters and adults intervene only when matters of safety and good judgment are involved. Troop 246 is a Boy run troop.

The troop provides a variety of Scouting experiences that may include lightweight, low impact and environmentally sensitive camping which is scaled to the boy’s size, strength, ability and maturity. Other types of camping are undertaken so the Scout develops well-rounded camping skills and experiences. Personal development and service to others is equally stressed with the camping program.

Troop 246 meets every Tuesday at 7:30pm at the American Legion Post 152 on Sheldon Road, which is located at:
