Welcome !

Troop 414 in Bedford, New Hampshire has been chartered with the Boy Scouts of America for over 41 years. Our Institutional Sponsor is the Bedford Presbyterian Church. We are a large troop, and follow the Boy-Led-Troop (BLT) 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 84 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.  The district “Smiley” award, presented for outstanding scout spirit, visits the troop following many events. Many of our adult leaders are also involved at the District and Council level locally.

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’e made of.  And, if you want to know more, please contact: webmaster@bedford414.mytroop.us

Amature Radio Field Day at Legacy Park, June 24 to June 26

Posted on Jun 14 2016 - 2:34pm

Over the weekend of June 24 through 26 the Granite State Amature Radio Association will be holding the AARL Field Day Operation at Legacy Park in Bedford. You might ask what that has to do with you.  I need both Youth and Adults help with this. In a nut shell what this event is all about is an international exercise where a group of amateur radio operators (ham radio) set up a command post of sorts make as many contacts as possible within a designated 24 hour period. The tricky part is that they have to start from "ground zero"! In other words no electricity. Any power used to run their equipment must be generated by themselves. The youth help is needed mostly on Friday to help set up the antennas and the rest of the infrastructure. On Saturday they my need some help but not all that much. But you can take advantage of these knowledgeable people to get your radio merit badge well in the road to completion. Even though you are not licensed you will have the opportunity to make radio contacts (a MB requirement) through the use of a special system set up just for that purpose. On Saturday we will be providing dinner for the participants, here is where I need the Adult help. This is a Win / Win for both of organizations. We can provide service while having fun. Please contact me st gsenn@comcast.net if you are interested in taking part of this event and I will get you the details. BTW if you have other scouting friends who would be interested, the door is open to them as well. At the very least stop by and check it out.
