Troop 43 History

Watertown Boy Scout Troop 43 has more than 60 years of history in Watertown helping boys grow into men. We usually have about two dozen activities a year, including multiple volunteer opportunities through churches, natural resources and veteran's groups. We aim to have about fifteen to thirty active boys in the troop, supported by an equally active committee of about a dozen leaders including multiple trained Scoutmasters.

Mission Statement

Troop 43 is committed to developing character, citizenship, mental and physical fitness and leadership skills in our young scouts through a program that is both fun and challenging.

Recent Summer Camps

The boys of Troop 43 usually like to switch camps each year to maximize their experiences with different types of camping and areas of the state.

How many Eagle Scouts have come from the troop?

Dozens of Eagle Scouts have come from Troop 43. We maintain a plaque with all the receipients' just outside the St. Henry gymnasium.

Is there anything I can do as Watertown scouting alumni?

In addition to supporting our annual product sales, please consider volunteering some of your time or property to help the troop guide the next generation. Please contact our Scoutmaster for more information.

"Troop 43 has a long tradition of getting boys into the woods, the fields and the hills."
