Troop 55's regular meetings are Thursday nights at 7PM at the United Methodist Church in Clinton at 12 Commerce Street.  You do not need to be a member of this church to participate.  It is never too late to join the Boy Scouts and no prior Cub Scout experience needed! Join us in having fun at a variety of activities including camping, canoeing, hiking, sailing, boating, white water rafting, archery, shooting sports, and much more. One goal of the Boy Scouts is to get your youth outdoors and being active and physically fit.  Thus we are very flexible with other sports your youths participate in.

For boys younger than 11yrs old, join the Pack 55 Cub Scouts at http://clintonpack55.ScoutLander.com
