Welcome to the Troop One Family of Scouting

Come Join the Excitement and Fun of Scouting with Troop One

Connecting kids with nature and the great outdoors!

Welcome to Scouting and Troop One

We are in the midst of a rebuilding year and getting back to outdoor camping, learning scout skills, and having fun.   It has been a challenging time, but we have seen Scouts learn new skills, make progress in ranks, earn Eagle, and venture outside. We have biked along the shores of Lake Ontario, winter camped on Indian Lake and snowshoed up Chimney Mountain, raced in the General Clinton Canoe Regatta, and built and operated a bouldering wall at the Wescott Street festival.  We also spent a week at Sabattis Scout Camp in the Adirondacks.

Consider Scouting and Troop One for your child:

We would like to invite you learn more about Scouting and Troop One by attending a regular meeting or attending one of the recruitment events to be held at Erwin First Church, area schools, and other locations.

Please note, we will be meeting on many Tuesdays during the summer as well as have several outdoor activities.  Please call or contact us (see below) to make sure we will be meeting.

Want to go rafting.  Consider joining us on the Salmon River on Sunday July 21st.

We are proud of the balanced program we offer which integrates skill and leadership development with outdoor fun, high adventure, and community service.  It clearly has had an the impact on the lives of our Scouts.  Just ask any of the more than 50 scouts that have earned Eagle Scout over the last 35 years.  They will tell you that Scouting has shaped their lives and that for fun and adventure, Troop One is the place to be.

If you can’t make one of these sessions or want more information, you can:

 It is never too late to join Scouting!

Scout Meetings:  

Our regular meetings are held on Tuesdays at 7:00 pm in Friendship Hall at Erwin First United Methodist Church. 

Troop One continues to operate in a fashion that is consistent with COVID 19 Requirements and Guidelines.  For those concerned about having their Scout attend in-person meetings, we post requirement related materials on this site so that all scouts can advance in rank.

Outdoor Program:

The outdoor program we are planning for the spring would progressively introduce Scouts to camping in the outdoors.  It would move from day trips to overnights nearby and then to longer overnight stays in the Adirondacks or other locations.

Leader's Challenge:  While you are at home, why not complete some requirements by cooking meals, tracking chores, and holding a family activity night?  Click here for details.
