Welcome !

We're happy you decided to check out our Troop. There is a lot of information on our website. We suggest that you start with the New Scouts section, which will give you lots of information about Boy Scouts and how our Troop is organized. You can check out the Calendar to see all the cool trips we are planning.  Although we are a Boy-Led Troop, we need adults to deliver the best program we can. There are many opportunities to volunteer - driving, chaperoning, acting as a merit badge counselor, helping out the committee to do the background work so that all the events happen. Check out our Parents section for more information.  Although we had a phenomenal summer - between Summer Camp and the Bi-annual Maine Canoe Trip - we are looking ahead to an equally exciting new Scouting Year.

So join us and, WELCOME to Troop 44!

What Positions of Responsibility are there for Scouts?

Posted on May 28 2016 - 9:30pm


Once boys reach the rank of First Class, they cannot advance any further in rank without serving the Troop in a Position of Responsibility.  We find that many boy scouts aren't aware of all the positions available in running a troop.  Below are a list of the positions, with a description of each.  It is always the discretion of the Scoutmaster to modify or alter the job requirements or description.

Leadership is much more than standing in front of the group giving directions.

There are four ways every Scout is a leader-


First you lead yourself, second you follow  cooperatively, third you help your fellow Scouts, and fourth you shape the directions and plans for your patrol and troop. You may be all four kinds of leader at once, other times you may be focused on a particular way of leading, all four ways are equally  important.
