About Our Troop/How To Join
Troop 25 of Pelham, NH is chartered by the First Congregational Church. Scouting began in Pelham with this troop in the 1930’s. The Lt. Elmer G. Raymond Memorial Park is named after a member of the troop who’s life was lost during WWII. His surviving friends, former scouts, sought to remember Lt. Raymond and his love of scouting by renaming what “everyone” called the “Scout Lot” after him. The lodge on that property was built and expanded by scouts in the 50’s and 70’s. Today scouts of various units enjoy the legacy that began with our troop. In the past few years, we’ve visited many exciting places. To name just a few:
- Acadia National Park
- Mt. Cadillac
- Mt. Monadnock
- New York City
Interested in joining Troop 25? Come on down to our weekly meetings, which are held at 35 Keyes Hill Road at 7:00 to 8:30 PM on Thursday nights! Contact Mr. Wilkerson at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
As of right now, one of our major goals is a high-adventure base such as Florida Sea Base, or Philmont Scout Ranch.
