Watertown Boy Scout Troop 43 in Wisconsin
Watertown's Troop 43 is a boy-led Boy Scout troop dedicated to developing leadership and character through outdoor adventure. We typically plan about a dozen outings a year and camp in any weather, including winter.
In addition to weekend campouts in Wisconsin and nearby states, we also plan one or two week-long summer camps plus an extended "high adventure" trip. Our weekend campouts typically use the "patrol method" (boys cook and lead camping arrangements in their own patrol), and involve different camping styles such as warm-weather tent camping, cabin-based winter camping, late fall "survival" camping (e.g., no tents), backpacking and more.
Who is in the troop?
There are about 20-30 active boys in the troop and about a dozen active adult leaders, including multiple trained Scoutmasters and a supporting troop committee with more than a hundred years of Scouting experience. Troop 43 is chartered by Watertown's St. Henry's parish, but welcomes boys of any faith. We are chartered in the Potawatomi Area Council and provide Den Chiefs for St. Bernard's Pack 43, Watertown's Pack 3 and other packs in the area.
