Welcome to Scouting

On behalf of the Executive Board, Scouts and Scouters, and our Knox Trail Council professional staff, we want to extend a warm welcome to you, our newest family in the Scouting program, here in the MetroWest area.

We are celebrating more than 103 years of Scouting in America! What an adventure it has been, and yet to be! Here in our Knox Trail Council that adventure of Scouting is being realized every week at the Den and Troop meetings, outings, and camp programs.

You have joined a vibrant, dynamic, and growing program which has the collective support of hundreds of community organizations, institutions, chartered partners, and dozens of other youth-serving agencies. Scouting works!

The camp properties available to you and your Scouting family are second to none. Our Cub Camp and Scout Resident Camp, located at the Robsham Scout Reservation in Bolton, MA, are running full to overflowing, due to the excellent programming and reasonable pricing. The Nobscot Scout Reservation in Framingham/Subury, MA, is a parcel of land that is full of history, has ecological importance, and is a true environmental treasure in this part of Massachusetts. Nobscot is about to undergo a dramatic transformation, and become an important regional educational / ecological / historical resource to be used by our Scouts and community.

The Knox Trail Council is grateful for the excellent support we receive from existing families in terms of time, talents, and finances. Those who have come before you have laid the foundation for YOU – today – so that your children can enjoy Scouting.

We trust that you will do your part, in whatever way you can, for the kids of tomorrow.

Welcome to Scouting! Enjoy the adventure.

Yours in Scouting,

Sherry E. Bowden, Council President | Joshua D. Paulin, Council Commissioner | Matthew J. Budz, Scout Executive/CEO
