Troop 55 Riverside News


In March Troop55Riverside put on a Scout Skills day for the Cub Scouts of Pack 5 at St Martha’s Church. It was the first day of spring and the kids enjoyed being outdoors and helping the Cubs with their advancement. The Scouts from 55 planned the day at their meetings earlier in the month. On the day of the event they set up the stations and taught the Cub scouts some skills that they need to advance through their ranks and eventually earn their Arrow of Light award. The young scouts got stickers for each station they visited and got to pick out a small prize at the end as well as enjoying hot dogs and snacks for lunch.

Troop55 is also continuing its partnership with Evergreen House Health Center in a new way. In the past the troop has interreacted with the residents in person for various service projects but had to put that tradition on hold due to Covid19. With this new collaboration Scouts will now send photos and videos to be shared with the residents while we are out on scouting adventures and letting them know we are thinking of them.

Our troops are also very excited to get back to camping this month. The Troop is headed to Yawgoog for a long overdue weekend of fun. We will be sure to share pictures next month.

Your son or daughter can join in the fun, too. For more information go to or come check us out at one of our weekly Monday night meetings held at the Mason Lodge (located @18 Turner Avenue, riverside) @6:30 PM. We hope to meet you soon! *( the Troops are holding some weekly meetings virtually or at outdoor locations right now due to Covid 19 so please reach out to us on Facebook or email one of our Scoutmasters for more Information about visiting a meeting or joining the Troop.   (Boys) /  (girls) **
