Troop1

Read a wonderful letter of thanks from Denise Morris Curt as it pertains to Troop 1's scouts and leaders, exemplifying Troop 1's commitment to community and service. Read the letter!

Boy Scout Troop One was established on November 19, 1919 in Milford, Connecticut and has operated continuously for the past 90 years which makes it the oldest troop in Milford. The Plymouth Mens Club of the First United Church of Christ sponsors the Troop.

Troop meetings are held every Tuesday evening (all year round) at the Plymouth Building (34 West Main Street, Milford) from 7 to 8:30 PM.

The Troop has consistently provided a well-rounded Scouting program guided by experienced and knowledgeable youth and adult leaders. By maintaining a superior level of training and participation and living by the ideals of the Scout Oath and the Scout Law, many of Troop One’s Scouts and Scouters have risen to become leaders in the Milford community.
