Number of Chartered Scouts in Troop: Troop 303 has been chartered at the Marlboro Moose Lodge since 2005 and presently has approximately 40 (ages 11 - 17) scouts.We have had 22 Scouts achieve the rank of Eagle with 2 Scouts actively working on the Rank of Eagle.
1. The “Scout Year” lasts from September thru July the following year.
2. Troop meetings occur every Monday at the Marlborough Moose Lodge (7:00 pm -8:00 pm).
The purpose of these meetings is to plan for outings, work on merit badges, conduct rank
advancement, get out information, and/or host guest speakers. Once a month, in place of
Troop meetings, we try to schedule a fun event (e.g. swimming, rock climbing, etc.).
3. Once a month (except December) we have a camping and/or hiking event (we encourage
participation but understand there are other activities happening in the Scout’s life).
4. Approximately three times a Scout Year we host a Court of Honor where Scouts are recognized
for their achievements (e.g. merit badges, rank advancement, etc.).
