Troop 353 was founded in 1974, and has been operating continuously in Putnam Valley ever since.
We strive to teach young men about the outdoors through camping and hiking. We also provide opportunities for them to serve their community and teach them how to handle emergency situations Above all we promote the Scout code and law. Through these methods we are preparing our young men to be responsible adults and citizens in their community and nation. Join us at our Boy Scout Meetings at the VFW in Putnam Valley, on Oscawana Lake Road, Tuesdays from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. For more information E-mail: PVTroop353@gmail.com
