Welcome to Troop 658!


Boy Scout Troop 658 has served youth from Winooski, Colchester, Burlington, South Burlington, Milton, Essex Jct. and the surrounding communities since 1923.  We offer exciting, adventure based programs for boys ages 11-17.

Scouting's Journey to Excellence" is the BSA's council performance recognition program designed to encourage and reward success and measure the performance of our units. It is meant to encourage excellence in providing a quality program at all levels of the BSA.  We are proud to be a "Gold" level unit for 9 years running.

Summer Camp Update

Posted by MParascando on Mar 31 2021 - 1:42am

Summer camp at Mt. Norris is just over the horizon and the Green Mountain Council is working hard to plan a safe and fun week at camp!

Troop 658 will be attending Week 3, from July 25 - 30.

The fees have been announced: $250 deposit by 4/30/21.  $450 total per scout if paid in full by 6/15/2021; $480 after 6/15/2021.
(Troop is researching if a deposit amount lower than $250 will be permitted.) 

A new system was implemented by the Council which should allow parents to make payments online and directly to Council through a Parent Portal, however, it's not yet available.  Stay tuned for additional information - we will let you know if deposits need to be made to the troop.

There is a new sponsorship program called VT Character Co-op which allows families to become sustaining supporters to Scouting in Vermont at the cost of $15/month.  Families who participate will pay $400 per scout for camp instead of the above regular and late fee.
Camperships are available for those in need of assistance.  Campership applications must be completed and received by Council no later than April 30th.

See below attached documents for the Council campership application and Council summary of fees.
