Troop 241

Port Washington, N.Y.

Home

           BSA Troop 241 has been in existence in Port Washington, New York since the 1950‘s. The Troop, which holds weekly meetings on Thursday evenings at the Lutheran Church of Our Savior on Franklin Ave., focuses on teamwork, responsibility and skills fundamental to strong leadership. 

           The more an individual experiences, the more one learns about himself and the environment. For this reason, Troop 241 strives to keep its schedule of activities as full and as varied as circumstances permit. The Troop believes that exposing a boy to many different opportunities such as skiing, kayaking, winter camping, outdoor survival skills, and community service projects encourages self-confidence. The Troop’s objective is to guide boys toward becoming knowledgeable Scouts, strong leaders, and responsible citizens.

Outdoor Adventures

           Camping and hiking during all four seasons are enjoyed by Scouts and leaders alike. The Scouts have endured weather ranging from the heat of the summer to zero degree temperatures during the winter. With guidance from adult leaders and experienced Eagle Scouts, all aspects of the trips are organized by the boys including site location, gear organization, food planning/purchasing and cooking. The Scouts’ experiences during each adventure become life lessons, which help to develop more mature, self-confident youth.
