2015 NYLT & Brownsea Youth Leadership Training Opportunities - SIGN UP NOW!
Brownsea is a hands on approach to teach youth leadership skills through practice and use of the scout skills (camping, hiking, nature study, pioneering & cooking). The program places emphasis on Scout skills, teaching, practice and the role of the patrol method. It is not done by classroom lectures, but rather by programs of skill, leadership exercise and patrol competition.

1.  June 21 – 26 Brownsea 22. (Lone Tree Scout Reservation, YCC)

National Youth Leadership Training ("NYLT") is a action-packed program designed to provide Boy Scouts with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home units, to run a successful boy-led Troop and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others. 

2.  July 19 – 24 NYLT National Youth Leadership Training (Camp Storer, Boston Minuteman Council) 

3.  August 16 – 21 NYLT National Youth Leadership Training (Lone Tree Scout Reservation, YCC)

MARK YOUR CALENDAR...2015 Troop 507 week at T.L. Storer Scout Camp is already in the planning phase!

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 5th - Saturday, July 11th, 2015.  MARK YOUR CALENDAR NOW!

_______________________________________________________________________

The next PLC has been scheduled for Monday, April 12th... ALL in leadership positions should attend!

The next scheduled Patrol Leaders Council meeting is Sunday, April 12th@ 7:00 PM.  ALL Scouts in leadership positions and Eagle Scouts, SHOULD attend PLC meetings as scheduled.  Please come with pen and paper, ready to provide your input into YOUR program.  Showing up and having effective, well run PLC meetings is your best way to prove you are committed to having Troop 507  be "boy run"!  Youth leaders "take charge" of your Troop and programs! 

______________________________________________________________________________

Troop Committee Meeting scheduled, Thursday, June 11th, @7pm!
We know everyone is busy, but please be respectful of the Troop volunteers and be in attendance. Make every effort to have one parent per Scout attend. You will be glad that you came!  The Committee Meeting starts at 7:00 pm!

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 45+ 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 the Boston Minuteman 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, at:

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

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.
