Welcome !

Troop 414 is a very active troop with monthly outings.  Scouts have an option to attend any or all of three summer camps. We are a medium sized troop, and follow the Boy-Led-Troop organization model.

We meet every Thursday night starting at 6:30 at the Bedford Presbyterian Church.  Come check us out!

Our program strives to develop the core scouting principles:  character, citizenship, community service, leadership, and outdoor skills -- with a strong emphasis on making the whole experience FUN!  Advancement through the scouting ranks is a priority. Troop 414 has honored 112 Eagle Scouts throughout our history, and that number continues to rise.

The troop maintains a very high profile within Massabesic District and Daniel Webster Council.  Many of our adult leaders are also involved at the District and Council level.

Located in Bedford, New Hampshire, the troop has been chartered with the Boy Scouts of America for over 50 years. Our Institutional Sponsor is the Bedford Presbyterian Church.

This website is designed as both an informational tool for the public and a communications center for our scouts and parents.  As a result, some of the areas require a password in order to log-in. Look around.  See what we’re made of.  If you want to know more, please contact: scoutmaster@troop414.org

Sleeping Bags and the 13 Essentials

Posted on Sep 16 2017 - 7:15pm

Hello Scouts,

  I promised to make available my list of the 13 Essentails for Hiking and an introduction to sleeping bags 101, so please see the attachments!  For those who would like to order some brand new, very high quality military sleeping bags (-10 degree rating) they are now available in limited quantities for $50.  These are the latest military technology and comparable to $175 models currently in the market place.  They are soldier proof and nearly scout proof as well.  Let me know if anyone is intersted and I can place an order (I already have one if folks would like to see it prior to ordering).  

Popcorn season is upon us!
