About Our Organization

Boy Scout Troop 42 is based in Quincy, MA. Our chartered organization is the Quincy Friends of Scouting. The city of Quincy is part of the Great Blue Hill District within The Spirit of Adventure Council, which is Council #227 of the Boy Scouts of America.

We meet every Friday evening from 7-9pm in the lower hall of the church. We are a very active Troop that goes on at least one outing per month. We also plan one long distance trip per year. We consistently earn the Quality Unit award each year, and are frequently asked to serve on color/honor guards for signficant public events.


Boys of all faiths and ethnic backgrounds from ages 11-17 are welcome to join the Troop. At least one adult is requested to join the Troop with each boy to assist with the operations of the Troop. Boy Scout Troops are entirely volunteer run, and it takes the involvement of all the families to make them run well. The annual dues (as of 2008) are $150 per year. The only other joining requirement is the expense of a uniform shirt.
