Troop 160 Scoutmasters

Scoutmaster
Norman Rockwell’s famous painting “The Scoutmaster”, 1956.

Troop 160 has been an active and robust Troop for over 85 years, and its entirely due to active and robust adult leadership.  We continue many of the same traditions over the past 50+ years as our Scouts turn into our Scoutmasters and carry the torch to yet another generation.  We are very thankful for the many hours of dedicated service by these adults.
