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
