Troop 5

Troop History

The Boy Scouts of America was incorporated in 1910. Troop 5 of Maplewood, New Jersey was chartered ten years later, in 1920. Over the years, Troop 5 has distinguished itself as one of the finest Boy Scout Troops in our area. The Troop has seen over one hundred Scouts achieve the rank of Eagle Scout.
