About Us

 

           Troop meetings take place every Monday night from 7:30 until 9:00 at the at Newtown Presbyterian Church (located at the corner of Washington and Chancellor Streets in Newtown Borough). No meetings are scheduled on major holidays or during July and August. Troop meetings consist of patrol activities, instruction and practice in scout skills for rank advancement, games of scout skills and fun, merit badge classes, preparation for outings and recognition of achievements. Outings are outside-the-meeting activities that can be one day, overnight or multi-night. These include hikes, bike trips, campouts, trips to special sites (such as The Intrepid Museum in NYC, Gettysburg, and Annapolis), rafting, skiing, rock climbing, etc. Our outings are varied and frequent, usually once a month. Scouts learn many skills on these trips and enjoy experiences they will remember forever. Summer Camp is a very important event in a Scout's experience as it provides an intense six day program focused on developing Scout skills and earning merit badges. The summer camp environment provides Scouts with significant opportunities for growth in critical areas necessary for healthy youth development. Troop 380 attends a different summer camp each year. Community service is an integral part of the Boy Scout program. Troop 380 Scouts perform community service projects throughout the year. The troop recently "adopted" the Clark Nature Center and will be focusing many of its service hours on maintenance activities there. Assisting with Eagle Scout service projects are another way that Scouts provide service to the community. Parent Committee meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month (except July) from 7:30 to 9:30 PM at the Newtown Presbyterian Church.
