Welcome to Troop 658!

CELEBRATING 95 YEARS OF SCOUTING SERVICE TO OUR COMMUNITIES!

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. We meet Sunday evenings at Saint Francis Xavier School from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm.  Visit us and see for yourself what a difference you can make in the life of a young man.

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 8 years running.

Revolutionary War Soldier Experience

Posted by rkenyon on Sep 17 2019 - 6:14pm

Oct 19-20, Ethan Allen Homestead  

TAKE NOTICE!

Troops are now raising by authority of the Honorable Continental Congress

To secure our Liberties and Rights against the Crown.

Now Recruiting Men at Arms for

Col. Seth Warner's Regiment

 

Officers (senior scouts), NCOs (PLs & APLs) and Private soldiers needed!

Officers shall be paid 13 1/3 Continental dollars, Serjeants $8, Corporals and Trumpeters $6, and Privates to receive 6 2/3 dollars.  Enlistment Bonuses shall be paid to recruits whose patrols have 50% or higher attendance.

Officers may sleep in the Allen house and dine by the fireplace with the other Regimental Officers & Staff, as befits such Gentlemen.  Enlisted men will sleep out-of-doors in tents or under tarps and cook their issued rations by patrol. 

The Serjeant Major advises enlisted men to be thrifty, and spend their pay on ingedients for the cooking competition and other necessities instead of sweets and trinkets.  Above all DO NOT risk a court-martial by gambling with cards or dice! ;)

Soldiers will train as light infantry, handle and fire flintlock muskets, stand guard duty watching for British forces and Loyalist spies, and learn other 18th century soldier skills while competing for patrol prizes.  

Scouts who have earned a shooting sports Merit Badge or have passed a Hunter Safety Course will be permitted to fire blanks from a musket (under supervision) during the maneuvering and firing exercises.  Scouts not meeting this prerequisite will be allowed to use a non-fireable musket to participate.  Special waivers will be required for this event.

Revolutionary War Trivia: The official enlistment age for the Continental Army was 16, (15 with parental consent)...  The majority of Continental soldiers were young men, usually around 17 or 18 years old.  Think about that for a minute.  Teenagers fought and defeated the most powerful military in the world and freed our Country from British tyanny.  Come spend a few hours in their shoes.
