Welcome To Troop 42 of New Fairfield!

sponsored by the New Fairfield Lions Club, and a member of the Scatacook District of the Connecticut Yankee Council, Boy Scouts of America.

Join Us!

We are a boy-led troop, offering a Scouting program with emphasis on camping and outdoor skills. Our Scouts actively practice the leadership skills they'll use as adults.  All boys age 11 to 17, in grades 6 or higher, are welcome to join us or to visit a meeting.   Please contact our Committee Chairman or Scoutmaster to arrange your visit to a meeting - we believe you'll become one of our newest members.
