Mount Monadnock - Around the first weekend of November, Troop 146 comes a knocking...Mt Monadnock'ing, that is. This year 22 brave scouts and adults traveled to Jaffrey, New Hampshire to test out their camping gear in below freezing temperatures and hike one of the most traveled paths in New England. On a clear day, you can see more than just fall foliage, but buildings in Boston (70 miles) and Mt Washington (200+ miles). Wowz'ahs!!

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.

Troop 146, a scouting group in West Hartford, CT, is a diverse and inclusive community where scouts educate scouts through applied learning and fun activities, while building character and preparing leaders for today and the future. It's a place that is committed to one and other's achievement and expanding opportunities.

This annual ski, snowboarding and snow tubing trip is a great way to enjoy winter fun with fellow scouts and family! After a full day of activities, scouts camp out at Camp Strang. It is also a great way to earn your Snow Sports Merit Badge.

Be Part of Our Traditions

Monadnock 2021

Not your typical derby. Steeped in a tradition since 1949,  Scouts make a sledge (sled-like equipment transport) and race through a course that has stations where patrols are tested on their Scoutcraft skills and their leadership abilities, earning points towards a total score. The troop with the highest score wins the derby!

Upcoming Events

Heading into the spring Troop 146 will be holding both in-person meeting and events, while still observing safety best practices. See calendar for more details. Scout leaders will continue to monitor and re-evaluate the COVID-19 pandemic situation, and will keep parents and scouts informed of troop activities.
