Please help support our troop!

The goal of every Boy Scout troop is to build leaders. At Troop 81, we have done so, having supported 50 Chelmsford scouts to Eagle Rank.

Although scouting is not prohibitively expensive, Troop 81 asks parents to pay for much of the scouting journey. The troop does have costs that are not passed on, such as camping equipment, our travel trailer, camperships to Boy Scout leadership programs such as NYLT and Brownsea, camperships to Camp Wahtutca, and various other events where trip or event costs are shared with the parents of scouts.

Some of our trips have included in the past Washington, DC, the Connecticut River, Nickerson State Park, or Mount Blue in Maine. Upcoming trips include the Allagash Waterway and Gettysburg.

We appreciate any donation you can provide! All donations are tax deductible via Friends of Troop 81. Friends of Troop 81 is a 501c3 nonprofit corporation dedicated towards supporting Troop 81. Rest assured, however, as 100% of your donation will benefit the Troop.
