Scout Troops Chartered by First Congregational Church
First Congregational Church is proud to sponsor three local Scouting troops:
Scout Troop 624
Troop 624 has been chartered by First Congregational Church since 1958. The troop holds its meetings weekly on Wednesdays starting at 7pm. This is the traditional Scouting BSA experience (this is a boy troop) for youth ages 11-18 years old. Service, community engagement, and leadership development become increasingly important parts of the program as youth lead their own activities and work their way toward earning Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout.

Cub Scout Pack 630
Cub Scout Pack 630 has been chartered by First Congregational Church since 2015. The pack meets on the first Thursdays of the month; dens meet at various times. Pack 630 serves girls and boys in Kindergarten through 5th grade in Essex Junction, Essex Town, Westford and the surrounding communities in Chittenden County. Cub Scouting teaches the values and skills of scouting through a fun program of activities and events focused on developing character and leadership, building citizenship, physical activity and learning new skills.

High Adventure, service, community engagement, and leadership development become increasingly important parts of the program as youth lead their own activities and work toward the Discovery, Pathfinder and Summit Award.
