Boy Scouts of America Prepared for Life

Come Visit Us!

Boy Scout Troop 23 offers a year-round outdoor-based program designed to offer and encourage effective character, citizenship, and fitness training for boys age 11-17.

Boy Scout Meetings are held every Wednesday Evening at 7:00 pm at the St. Peters Center on the corner of Cottage and East Streets in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.



Troop 23 has some type of activity every month. Past campouts have focused on hiking, backpacking, outdoor cooking, rock climbing and rappelling, biking, and canoeing. We have regular events like special themed “Camporees”, a mid-winter “Klondike Derby”, as well as other special events involving scouts from all over Massachusetts. Each summer we attend a week-long summer camp.

Our Troop’s History

Our troop was founded in 1928 and is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Great Barrington. Our Troop has enjoyed serving our community and our sponsoring organization since our beginning. Since the Troop was charted we have had 60 Scouts achieve the rank of Eagle. Our Eagle projects have helped our local community, schools, churches, and charities.

Merit Badges

Merit badges are awards earned by youth members of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), based on activities within an area of study by completing a list of requirements which are updated periodically. The purpose of the merit badge program is to allow Scouts to examine subjects to determine if they would like to further pursue them as a hobby or perhaps even a career.
