Welcome to Troop 270 of Thurmont, Maryland.
Troop 270 has a long legacy. While Troop 270 has only been around for a bit over 60 years, it's roots date back over 80. From 1928 to 1932, Charles Eby led a group of 12 boys in an organization modeled after the Boy Scouts of America. In 1932, the boys, now under the leadership of Ross Smith, recruited the Thurmont Lions Club to sponsor a BSA troop and Troop 11 was chartered. The troop became inactive during World War II and was revived in 1946 during a national reorganization of the BSA in which Troop 11 became Troop 270. Throughout the years however, the troop has continuously been sponsored by the Thurmont Lions Club. In 1956, the Scoutmaster designed and had built the only privately owned Scout building in the council; it is owned by Thurmont Scouting, Inc., a non-profit dedicated to the ideals of all scouting groups.
Troop 270 is one of the most active BSA Troops in the Frederick County area and has a program designed to keep any Scout busy! Some of these activities include, but by no means are limited to; backpacking, bicycle touring, camping, caving, hiking, mountain biking, rafting, rappelling, rock climbing, sailing, scuba diving, skiing and snowboarding.These are just a few of the things that Troop 270 does!
