“We are not a club or a Sunday school class, but a school of the woods.”

Please read and abide by these guidelines before re-engaging. If you have questions or concerns please contact us by email. covid19@mayflowerbsa.org

The Mayflower Council is excited to provide to our units the Reopening Scouting information and documentation needed for any Mayflower Council unit to re-engage in unit meetings, activities, outings and/or service. There are some new required procedures before re-engagement can occur. Below are 4 guidebooks for all units and registered members/families to follow prior to re-engaging at any level of participation. These documents and required forms are necessary for the protection of our members (including our youth members), volunteer leaders and chartered partners, and the Mayflower Council and the BSA. The purpose of these precautionary procedures and steps is to mitigate certain risks and liabilities that unit leaders and others may be exposed to in connection with the reopening of Scouting in Mayflower Council while facilitating the ability to provide a first-class program to the youth we serve.

About Us

Scout Troop 99, Franklin, MA, was established in 2002 and is chartered by the Franklin Rod & Gun Club. Our troop is part of the Headwaters District of the Mayflower Council, of the Boy Scouts of America. Our troop has about 25 members and is very active. We run a year-round program that emphasizes the values of Scouting and strives to develop self-confidence, self-reliance and leadership in our boys.

Troop 99 is a scout-run troop and operates by the patrol method. Older scouts in the Patrol Leader's Council (PLC), with oversight from the Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters, plan and implement the troop's activities, including our weekly troop meetings and campouts. Scouts who are not on the PLC have opportunities to serve the troop in other leadership positions such as Troop Guide, Librarian, Historian, Scribe, Quartermaster, Chaplain's Aide and Den Chief.
