Troop 146 is happy to announce an opportunity for its Scouts – a chance to go to Philmont High Adventure summer 2022. It's been a while since our Scouts and Leaders have traveled to Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico, and we are very excited to be returning this year.
Don't forget to check our event calendar for preparatory events.
We meet Thursday evenings from 7:15 - 8:30 PM at the West Hartford United Methodist Church on New Britain Avenue. Come by and check us out to see if we're the troop for you.
Jacob Mooney, a life scout, and his sister, Bridget, helped to greet and meet the Memorial Day Parade’s Grand Marshall, a three star, LtGen Edward Banta.
This year Troop 146 will make the pilgrimage to Gettysburg National Military Park, the site of the battle that changed the tide of the Civil War — and of American history at large. Scouts will get a chance to tour the historic acres of the famous battlefield, see many monuments, take a ghost tour, and visit the Gettysburg Visitor Center and Museum.
After a long winter, each spring Troop 146 ventures outside to see natures renewal in action. This year, we will return to Camp Sequassen in New Hartford, CT. The camp consists of 600 acres of forest with over a half mile of shoreline on West Hill Pond. Plan to do fishing, hiking, and other outdoor activities. See More Images

Historical Trip - This year's historical trip led Troop 146 to the battlefields of Gettysburg. As on July 4, 1863, when Lee's retreat from Gettysburg was hampered by rain, mud and swollen creeks, so too were our scouts campout to these hallowed grounds. Despite the rain, scouts got to walk the very same paths that Longstreet, Meade, Lee, Reynolds, and so many soldiers did 159 years prior. They also went on a ghost tour, dined out at Pickett's Buffet, and visited the Gettysburg Museum. To see more pictures of our trip visit our Events page.
