Welcome to Troop 9 Stamford
Troop 9 was established in 1923 and it has remained an active youth driven troop in the Stamford community with weekly meetings on Thursday nights, and monthly campouts and outdoor activities.
Over 100 scouts have earned the rank of Eagle Scout as a member of our program. We look forward to working with you and making your scouting experience fun and educational. An exciting program has been planned for the entire scouting year including a week at Scout Summer Camp.
Our objective in Troop 9 is to provide our youth with a program that is fun, adventurous, and offers opportunities for them to learn new skills as they advance in rank and live a rewarding scouting experience through the Boy Scout program.
Troop 9 Overview
