Welcome to SCOUTS BSA Troop 270, sponsored by the Newtown Congregational Church in Newtown, Connecticut.
Founded in 1958, Troop 270 is a leadership troop in The Connecticut Yankee Council, Scatacook District. Since its inception, Troop 270 has produced 106 Eagle Scouts, and many more scouts are on their way to achieving Eagle Scout rank. Troop 270 has 31 active Scouts ranking from Scout to Eagle.
The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America is to promote, through cooperation with other agencies, the ability of youth to do things for themselves and others, and to teach youth patriotism, courage, self-reliance, and kindred virtues. In achieving this purpose, emphasis is placed upon the Boy Scouts of America’s educational program and its oaths, promises, and codes for character development, citizenship training, and mental and physical fitness.
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices
over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
The Boy Scouts of America will prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible,
participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.
