Number of Chartered Scouts in Troop: Troop 303 has been chartered at the Marlboro Moose Lodge since 2005 and presently has approximately 35 (ages 11 - 17) scouts.We have had 21 Scouts achieve the rank of Eagle with 2 Scouts actively working on the Rank of Eagle.

  

Meetings/Gatherings:

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.).
