Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 70 from North Chelmsford MA. We meet at the West Chelmsford United Methodist Church. The troop was established in 1965 and we are members of the Spirit of Adventure Council.
During the year we organize many activities including overnight camping at the Haystack observatory. Canoe trips on the Saco, Connecticut or Allagash rivers. White water rafting, hiking in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, bicycle trips on Nantucket MA and attending the Chelmsford town meetings.
Our main philanthropic opportunity is through a Christmas tree pickup service that we provide to the community.
Many of our scouts have made it to the rank of Eagle Scout. Their eagle projects have been in many areas:
- Protective fences at school playgrounds.
- A Gazebo at a school playground
- A cement sidewalk at a middle school
We are a scout run troop. There are adult advisors but much of the responsibility is left with the scouts for organizing, mentoring and leading new scouts.
We go to summer camp at Camp WAH-TUT-CA in Northwood NH.
