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

Popcorn Sales

Posted on Sep 27 2015 - 6:37pm
Troop 414, 
It's been a good start to the Popcorn Sales season. I'd like to remind those of you that are selling Popcorn door-to-door or in the workplace that I'll be collecting your Order forms at the next 3 Troop meetings. You still have some time to get out and make a final circuit in your neighborhoods. Don't forget they don't have to pay for the popcorn until it's delivered, which can be a great way to close a sale.
The popcorn order forms are due to me no later than Thursday, October 15th. If you can't make a Troop meeting between now and then, please contact me directly, so that we can make other arrangements.
The popcorn orders will be available after November 13th. As we get closer to that date, I'll let you know the arrangement for order pick-ups, etc.
