"Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away!"

Troop 507 has been awarded a 2018, 12-Day  Expedition Slot at

Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico.

The dates of the trip will be from Sunday, July 22, 2018 to August 3, 2018.  We now have room for a crew of 12 (consisting of 8-9 youth and 3-4 adults 18+yrs.) from Troop 507 for the summer of 2018!  Philmont Scout Ranch, the Boy Scouts of America's premier High Adventure base, challenges Scouts with backpacking expedition hikes through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains , ranging in elevation from 6,600 feet at Headquarters to 12,441 feet at the top of Baldy Mountain. Fascinating backcountry programs and more than 350 miles of challenging trails await those who seek to discover the wonder of Scouting’s Paradise as over 880,000 Scouts, Venturers and leaders have since 1939.

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
