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!

Troop-5 lwinter klondike long fire

Everyone was prepared! 6 of our seasoned Scouts set up a winter camp in the dark last night, They prepared a Toop-5 favorite for dinner (kielbasa- and anything,,,) and worked together like a team. As you may know, we always do something different for our camp fire (always safe), so we demonstrated and used an old fashion "long fire" like the rugged Pioneers did. Each log is about 6' long. They burn longer and more even, so it takes less fuel. We don't have to cut as much wood, so we burn less fuel and they provide a more controlled warming area. Long Fires give off less sparks which is good in both windy and dry conditions. Everyone is now confirmed safely home. Have a great weekend!

The Klondike is ON!, any questions, call me 203.969.4058 and log in to read further
