Troop 63 in Sudbury was chartered August 1, 1967, and is a member of the Boy Scouts of America, Knox Trail Council (Liberty District). Our troop meets weekly in Sudbury for a variety of fun activities, scout led trip planning, and ceremonies to celebrate rank advancement. Our troop enjoys monthly activities like camping and hiking at Nobscot Boy Scout Reservation in Sudbury, biking trips on Cape Cod and the Islands, and ice climbing in Glenn, New Hampshire.
Each year, Sudbury Troop 63’s program includes an exciting Summer Boy Scouts of America High Adventure trip. The Troop selects one of three possible trips: a unique aquatic quest at the Bahamas Sea Base; a wilderness canoeing trek camping challenge at the Northern Tier (MN/Canada) or a wild west backpacking expedition at the Philmont New Mexico Scout Ranch.
Boy Scouts prove themselves in an environment that challenges their courage and tests their nerve. After they've been given the proper guidance from those with experience and know-how, they take their own lead, going places they've never gone, seeing things they've never seen, and diving into the rugged world of outdoor adventure, relying on teamwork and character to accomplish what everyone else thinks is impossible.
In July Troop 63 scouts may spend a week together at camp Resolute in Stow, MA. Scounts have taken merit badges of Swimming, Archery, Archeology, Rifle Shooting, Pottery, Canoeing, Art, Fire Safety, Leatherwork, Woodcarving, Emergency Preparedness, Wilderness Survival, Environmental Science, Fly Fishing, Kayaking, Camping, Shotgun Shooting, Cooking, and Indian Lore. Campfires, sports events, swimming and boating are enjoyed during free time.
