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!

Bike West Hartford Community Service Event

Posted on Aug 27 2016 - 12:38pm
Tomorrow, August 28, 2016, is the first ever "Bike West Hartford" event taking place in the West Hartford Center, and they need our help!!
They are looking for volunteers, below is their message to us.
Please plan on meeting at the Arapahoe Road parking lot, across from Bricco's, between 8-8:30 to coordinate our volunteer assignments. According to my count, we will need a total of 9 volunteers spread out across the route throughout the morning (5 to assist the police with vehicle movements, 1 at the music venue, 1 at the "hula hoop zone" in front of Toy Chest, 1 at the "play zone" on Farmington Avenue near Dale Road, and 1 at the BAC table). Please round up as many Scouts as you can, I think we are going to need them.

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.
