SIGN UP NOW..For 2018 Troop 507 week at T.L. Storer Scout Camp, in Barnstead, NH...

Located in the heart of New Hamphire the property that we call T.L. Storer S.R. has been the home to Scout camps for more than five decades.  This Scout Reservation is far enough away from the city to truly be an outdoor adventure but close enough that it's easily accessible from Winchester.  Storer's rich tradition, vibrant atmosphere and well trained staff make it the place to spend your summer.  Troop 507 has reserved Hopi campsite again this year for Sunday July 10th - Saturday, July 16th, 2018.  MARK YOUR CALENDAR NOW!  Notify Mr. deRedon that you are going next summer... it is not too early for saying "yes", I'm planning on going to Troop week 2018!

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 40+ 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 12,000+ 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
