Welcome to Troop 5

Troop 5 is a boy-run Boy Scout Troop!! ("boy-run" means that the adult scout leaders train and encourage the boys to take leadership positions within the troop). We are located in Stamford, CT at St. John's Episcopal Church, and we serve scouts in Lower Fairfield County, part of Powahay District of the Connecticut Yankee Council. If you are thinking of becoming a Boy Scout, we would love for you to join us. For more information, please see our attached flyer or select the "Contact Us" link to send an inquiry. For Scouts and Families of Troop 5, please visit the password-protected Members Area, which has Videos and Photos, important dates and times, plus much much more!! If you don't remember how to access the Members Area, ask one of the leaders. Welcome Webelos! We encourage you to visit our Troop. We know that you are visiting many troops, and they may all sound the same. We think we have a terrific group of scouts and adult leaders. There's always the temptation to just pick the Scout Troop that's closest to home; but that's not always the best match for the Scout. Come visit us and find out why we attract Scouts from all over!
