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.

Troop 158 and Venture Crew 2238 Explore Philmont in 2014

Members of Boy Scout Troop 158 and Venture Crew 2238, both of Shrewsbury, spent 12 days hiking at Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico in 2014. The 70-mile trek to an elevation of 11,000 feet over a rugged and mountainous terrain, included activities like fly-tying and fly-fishing, horseback riding, and 30-06 rifle shooting.

Prior to their hike, the groups spent three days exploring Colorado Springs, Colorado where they visited the Garden of the Gods, rode the cog railway up Pikes Peak, and did sandboarding at Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve.

The Main Aim of Scouting

Posted by mharrington on Sep 23 2018 - 10:34am

In Boy Scouts, we go camping, wear a uniform, learn skills, work on attaining ranks, hang around with our friends in Patrols and do a Good Turn Daily. None of these are the Main Aim.

Good Morning Families!

Believe it or not, summer is just around the corner and it is time to start preparing for Summer Camp once again.  This year, our troop is scheduled to be at Summer Camp starting Sunday, July 22nd through Saturday, July 28th.  It is always a great adventure and we hope your Scouts are excited to be attending. 
In order to get started, we need to know who is planning on attending Summer Camp this year.  Mr Harrington has sent out a couple of emails but we have yet to hear from many of you.  It is important that we get this information ASAP and it also has benefits for you as well.  
Early registration discount pricing ends on May 1st.  The cost of Summer Camp for Scouts registering before May 1st will be $385.00 for the week.  Prices go up by $50 after May 1st to $435.00, so take advantage of the early bird discount!
