Tuesdays at 6:30 pm at Trinitarian Church

Greetings, my name is Bob Goodman, Scoutmaster of Troop 87.  We meet at 6:30pm every Tuesday evening at the Trinitarian Congregational Church (our sponsoring organization) located at 72 Elm Street, North Andover.  We are a family-oriented high energy outdoor program focused on scout leadership development.  The emphasis of the Boy Scout program is to promote and encourage learning, leadership, and fun.  In support of this program, Troop 87 adult leaders are present as advisors, insuring safety and keeping the program focused on scouting ideals.  We encourage all troop, patrol, and council meetings, weekend camping excursions, and day trips to be run by Boy Scout leaders, not by adults.  In scouting, we believe the best way to develop leadership is to let the boys have as much freedom as possible; applying just enough adult authority and oversight to keep them safely focused on the tasks at hand.  As long as they are sincerely trying to accomplish the duties of their positions they are learning the rudiments of leadership.

If you have scouting aged sons, ages 11 to 17, and this sounds interesting, then we invite you to visit and check us out.  If you have any questions, please contact us through our website  Click here for Troop 87 website
