boy scout troop 7 new bedfordTroop 7 New Bedford is looking for boys ages 11 and up from the Greater New Bedford area that want to participate in fun and challenging outdoor activities and are looking to make new friends.

During our meetings, boys will have the opportunity to learn about the fun activities in Scouting such as field trips and sporting events, hiking, and camping trips throughout the year. Troop 7 New Bedford meets every Tuesday night from 6:30- 8:00 P.M. at the Gifts to Give which is located at 21 Cove Street in the south end of New Bedford.

Also, your son will learn about Boy Scout Summer Camp, which provides a variety of activities to participate in including swimming, boating, fishing, archery, rifle and shotgun (some age restrictions apply), singing songs, field sports, arts & crafts, nature (where you will learn poisonous plants, edible plants, and about all kinds of animals), just to name a few. There are also a number of important Scout skills they will have the opportunity to learn, including outdoor cooking, knot tying, using a map and compass, participating in skits, and many more fun activities.

Parents who attend one of our meetings will learn about the skills, aims, and values taught in Scouting, including physical fitness, citizenship, wilderness survival, camping, independence, leadership, camaraderie, responsibility, teamwork, discipline, character, and many other important practical life skills, such as how to deal with a medical emergency or a national disaster.
