Welcome to the website for Troop 158 in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts!  Serving the Scouting community  since 1989.

Troop 158 meets at St. Mary's Church (16 Summer Street) on Thursdays at 7:00 PM.  Meetings generally last 90 minutes depending on scheduled activities and planning requirements.  The Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters of 158 believe in empowering the young men of the troop to be responsible for organizing and managing weekly meetings, monthly camping trips, and the overall leadership structure of the troop.  This hands-on approach is accomplished through the direction, coaching, and support of the adult leadership.

If you would like to learn more about Troop 158, simply click on the About Us link.    If you would like to ask a question or would like to have an adult leader get in touch with you, click on the Contact Us link.  If you would simply like to learn more about Scouting, you can watch a video on the subject by clicking on this link: 100 Years of Scouting Video.

They have no gold to give you, but when age comes on to you  
They'll give you back the splendid things you taught them how to do
They'll give you rich contentment and a thrill of honest pride
And you'll see the nation prosper, and you'll all be satisfied.
