How to Join

Boy Scouting is a year-round program for boys 11 through 17 designed to achieve the aims of Scouting through a vigorous outdoor program and peer group leadership with the counsel of an adult Scoutmaster. No previous scouting background (Cub Scouts for example) is required. For boys already involved in Cub Scouts they may become Boy Scouts if they have earned the Cub Scouting Arrow of Light Award and are at least 10 years old or have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10 years old.
 
Due to a sponsorship merger Troop 25 is officially registered as a Dracut, MA organization, however, we still meet at the same Lowell, MA address as before (see sidebar on the left for directions). Please note this does not impact registrations as the town you live in does not have to correspond with the town where the Troop resides. For example, you may join Troop 25 of Dracut, MA even if you live in Lowell, MA (or any other town).
