Sign up for our September Camping Trip... a trip that includes fun at the Adventure Park at Storrs, CT!

 September Trip - sign up Monday, August 29th!

There's nothing like a trip at The Adventure Park at Storrs!  Within five beautiful acres of woodland you will find an amazing "aerial forest park."  This is THE Adventure Park to experience.  You'll see a series of platforms in the trees connected by cable, wood, rope and zip lines to form bridges.  Each bridge presents a different challenge.  You don't have to be a circus acrobat or Tarzan!  Choose from five different coded trails, from "beginner" to "most challenging".  Climb with confidence as there is a complete safety orientation before you climb!  

Look for the flyer for the September trip to come via email in mid - August, and bring the completed form and payment to our 2nd Fall Meeting on August 29th.  

Please direct any questions to the parent coordinator for this trip: Mr. Marks at 781.960.3666 or rjmarks99@gmail.com.

 


 

 

Welcome!

Boy Scout Troop 507, Winchester, MA has been instilling timeless values, preparing youth for life since 1932.  Currently Troop 507 is a mid-size unit of 50+ active and committed boys.  The troop focuses on fun and friendships, but also does its best to:

1. Develop personal skills and growth
2. Develop leadership skills
3. Enjoy and understand the outdoors
4. Challenge Scouts through advancement
5. Develop and understand the ideals of Scouting
6. Provide a safe and friendly atmosphere for learning
7. To have youth-planned and run activities

Troop 507 seeks to recruit all interested boys who have completed the fifth grade, or who are 11 years but not yet 18 years old. Not all Boy Scouts were former Cub Scouts or are from WInchester.  Troop 507 is proud of its diverse membership and knows no boundaries of race, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, economic status, family structure, physical or mental ability.  This nondiscrimination policy conforms with that of our sponsoring organization, Crawford Memorial United Methodist Church, and the 7/19/2001 publicly adopted policy of our local Scout Council which oversees approximately 18,000 area youth.  Troop 507 provides regular training in youth protection and diversity for youth and adults.

During the school year, Troop 507 has a  meeting every Monday night, from 6:45 to 8:15 pm.  Scouts are expected to wear Class "A" (uniform shirt, pants, neckerchief) to all meetings, and bring the Boy Scout Handbook, pen, paper and notebook for proper handling of Troop 507 business and advancement record keeping.  We meet at:

Crawford Memorial UMC
34 Dix Street (corner of Church/Dix Streets)
Winchester, MA  01890
