About Us

Troop 76 of Mystic, CT meets every Wednesday evening from 7pm-8:30pm, September through June at St. Patrick Church located at 32 E. Main Street in downtown Mystic. This is a scout-run Troop which allows its members to learn leadership skills and put those skills to use while being supported in their efforts by the Scoutmaster, Assistant Scoutmasters, Committee and Parents.

Troop 76 currently has approximately 40 active scouts from many area schools including Stonington High School, Pawcatuck Middle School, Mystic Middle School, Fitch High School, Cutler Middle School, Wheeler High School, Wheeler Middle School, Sacred Heart and St. Bernard's School.

The Troop camps monthly, attends spring and fall District Camporees, the Klondike Derby and a week-long summer camp. The Troop-owned trailer is outfitted with patrol boxes for each of the 5 patrols which contain cooking and camping equipment to support the Troop's outdoor program. Troop members participate in a variety of community service projects throughout the year including placing American flags throughout downtown Mystic on patriotic holidays and participating in the annual Mystic St. Patrick's Day Parade. Scouts volunteer to help community organizations and also assist other Scouts with Eagle Scout projects.

We complete several fundraisers annually including a food booth at the Mystic Outdoor Art Festival and selling BSA Popcorn, where the scouts can earn money which is applied to their individual scout account which can be used to pay for summer camp, campouts throughout the year and other scout-related expenses. We also host a Breakfast with Santa at Applebee's to raise funds for the Troop to be used for programming and equipment.

New scouts are always welcome throughout the year. Feel free to attend one of our weekly meetings or click on "Contact Us" to receive additional information or ask any questions.
