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.

Couch Beach Kayaking Trip

Posted on Jun 5 2017 - 8:19pm

We paddled as hard as we could and we made it to Couch Beach in Marshfield! We had a few scouts come and they all left with a smile on their face. We had great sheppard's pie in tin foil for dinner and french toast for breakfast! Don't forget the strawberry shortcake for dessert! Although we didn't have any luck fishing, we will hopefully have better luck next year!

Congratulations Ryan and Sean!
