Troop 304 is celebrating 100 years of scouting in Belmont, likely during Memorial Day weekend 2022 (102nd anniversary).  We're reaching out to all Troop 304 alumni to contact the troop to help us celebrate!

During the school year, Troop 304 meets on Tuesday evenings, 7:20-9pm at BWUMC, 421 Common St, Belmont, MA.  Masks, for Covid precautions, are optional for all parts of the meeting.

Higginbottom Pool

Posted on Sep 14 2017 - 9:28pm

Troop members are invited to come to Higginbottom Swimming Pool on Friday, October 13 at 6:30- 9p.m. The reasons are (1) to have fun, (2) To get a swim test, and (3) to do advancement. Every scout AND adult who wishes to go on the canoe trip must have a scout swim test in the previous 12 months. We are also planning to check scouts off for the Second class (5 a, b, c, d) and First class (6 a, e) rank requirements. Cost is $5 if you do not have a recreation pass.
