Boy Scout & Venturing Information for Smithfield

boy-scoutsJoin Boy Scout Troop One Georgiaville

Troop One Georgiaville meets every Thursday from 7-8:30 PM at the East Smithfield Neighborhood Center at 7 Esmond Street, Smithfield. Boy Scouting is for boys age 11-17, and is a community-oriented program that instills values such as citizenship, teamwork, honesty, respect, responsibility, and fitness, while being a lot of fun! We want the boys to have a great time, while teaching them something along the way. We also believe that an important part of scouting is giving back to the community, through community service projects and pride in America.

We welcome you to come to a meeting and check it out for yourself. For more information, contact the Troop One at http://1georgiaville.weebly.com/ or call 401-578-5261.
