About Troop 15...

 

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to help guide young people to make moral and ethical choices over the course of their lifetimes  by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Troop 15 is a scout-led troop with a strong outdoor program. We are located in Merrimack, NH. Our troop is chartered by St. John Neumann Church at 708 Milford Road, Merrimack, NH. We meet most Tuesday nights at 7pm. Boy Scouts are open to boys aged 11 to 18. For more details on Troop 15, please contact our Scoutmaster at scoutmaster@merrimack15.mytroop.us.

Our Troop currently has about 20 Scouts. Some of the activities over the last year include camping, canoeing, swimming, hiking, bicycling, and skiing. We've also got a great group of energetic, trained, experienced, dedicated, caring and patient men and women adult leaders that mentor the scouts along the path to Eagle.
