Scouting Around Epping

Scouting is alive in Epping. On September 15th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm, Cub Scout Pack 136 leaders will be at the Epping Elementary school to welcome boys and girls grades K through 5 into the Cub Scout Pack. Meet with some of the Scouts for games and good fun. Pack 136 loves the outdoors. Activities during the year include a Halloween party, hikes, and other fun times to be decided by the parents and youth.

Youth in grades 6 thru 12 are also welcome to join the Troop BSA. Come and some of the Scouts will tell you about their monthly activities. Our Troop 136 youth leaders have a plan for every month as well as weekly meetings. See you on the 15th of September. Pack 136 and Troop 136 are sponsored by the Epping Community Church

Epping Explorer Posts

Fire Department Explorer Post 136

Explorer Post 136 is looking for boys and girls age 14 to 20 who are interested in the firefighting service and/or emergency medicine. Many career firefighters, EMTs, and paramedics started as Explorers. Future jobs in the fire service might be Arson Investigators, Fire Marshals, or maybe a Fire Chief in charge of a City Fire Department. On August 31st at 6:30 pm, we invite you to the Safety Complex for a tour of the station and the equipment. You might even get your blood pressure taken in the back of an ambulance.

Epping NH Police Explorers

This is a hands-on program for youth ages 14-20.  It is for those interested in a career in law enforcement or related fields in the criminal justice system.  The program promotes growth through character development, respect for the rule of law, physical fitness, good citizenship and patriotism.  Please join us in helping to support this local youth program as well as the Child and Youth Program of the SAL.
