Troop 55 Riverside News


It has been a fun and exciting couple of months for the Scouts of Troop55 Riverside. In their September campout the scouts were able to go white water rafting at Zoar Gap in Massachusetts. This was yet another long-term goal the scouts were able to achieve.

October saw the return of the Highland Games campout at Camp Cachalot in Massachusetts. The scouts competed in the Scottish Themed activities including Caber Toss, Sheep Hoisting (Not a real sheep!), archery, tug-o-war, and of course the wearing of kilts. A good time was had by all!

Troop55 Looks forward to the return of another much loved tradition in November. The annual Thanksgiving camp out is back! The scouts put on a big feast including cooking “Trash Can Turkeys” and families are invited to join in the fun. This year the festivities will take place at Camp Champlain in Cranston.

If you purchased Popcorn at one of our popcorn sales this fall you helped support all the activities, you hear about and Troop55 Riverside thanks you for that support!

If you know a young person ages 11-17 who you think would like to join in on the fun come, check out the Scouts of Troop55 Riverside! We have both Girl and Boy troops. For more information go to or come check us out at one of our weekly Monday night meetings held at the Mason Lodge (located @18 Turner Avenue, riverside) @6:30 PM. We hope to meet you soon!
