Welcome to Troop 1 - Hanover, MA

1912 Welcome to Boy Scouts. The main objectives are to build character, foster citizenship and develop strong friendships. Over a  hundred years ago on July 4th, 1912 Troop 1 held its first hike and campout at Oldham Pond in Pembroke, MA. Hiking and camping were popular activities in the early years of the Troop. Other early campsites that were hiked: Humarock Beach, Brant Rock, Duxbury Beach, and Scituate Harbor. To facilitate the transport of supplies for a hike and campout that might last two days or longer a committee of five was formed in 1916 to secure a Trek cart. They decided to build the cart. Trek carts were very popular in those days. They were the predecessors to our patrol boxes and troop trailers. The carts were often built in the style of a small covered wagon.  They contained all the provisions, fuel, utensils, and supplies the patrol would need for a campout. Our Mission today is to continue the dedication and determination of Troop 1 in character building, citizenship and our connection to the community.

What:  Mt Success Hike and campout
When: June 27 - June 28

We'll be hiking Mt. Success via the Mt. Success Trail which is approximately an 8 mile loop hike. This is a day hike, but we will be camping overnight Saturday after returning to the cars.  Mount Success with an elevation of 3,565 ft, is a prominent and massive mountain in the rugged Mahoosuc Range that straddles the NH/ME border.  The lower slopes are typical Mahoosuc boreal forest; dense spruce and fir intermixed with deciduous trees. There are two broad, open summits of glacier-scoured granite hemmed in with blueberries and dwarf evergreens. Mount Success is the last NH summit encountered by north-bound hikers on the Appalachian Trail.
