New Scout Info

Boys are welcome to join Boy Scouts between the ages of 11 and 18 or if they have completed 5th grade,  and they can join at any time during the year.  Cub Scouts who earn their Arrow of Light are invited to join when they are 10 or older.  

While many boys join Boy Scouts from Cub Scouts,many others join with no previous scouting experience. Within a short period of time new boys are integrated into a patrol with other boys, are starting to work on advancement and are ready to join us for their first camping trip.  Older boys are often concerned that other scouts of their age are much further ahead in their advancement.  While that may be true, they are not by an

y means behind.  Scouts progress at their own pace and at any age level there are likely to be scouts at several ranks.  Because older scouts are more mature, with a concentrated effort and the support of their fellow scouts, they tend to advance much more quickly.

We encourage you to stop by on any Tuesday night at 7:30 PM (during the school year) to visit Troop 60.  If you are new to the Sudbury community, scouting is a wonderful way to make new friends quickly.
