The Scouting movement was founded in England by Robert Baden-Powell and brought to the United States in February of 1910. In 1913 a Boy Scout troop was formed here at the Congregational Church and was active for three years. Again in 1924 a troop was formed and served the young people of the community for four years. Back then it was known as Troop
W-1. In 1949, a group of concerned adults came together to form Troop W-6. In 1950, W-6 became Troop #1736 and exists today.
Boy Scout Troop #1736 has been serving this community continuously since 1940, a span of 70 years! More importantly, the members of the First Congregational Church of Wayne have seen fit to sponsor this activity and provide a meeting place, storage space and monetary support. By doing so, literally thousands of young men have benefited from the Scouting program, a program that teaches values and skills that last a lifetime.
The Scouts rent out canopies for families who want to host outdoor activities.
