Welcome to Troop 45's new Web page. Troop 45 has a long and glorious history and we are very proud to be involved with  this Troop.

Mr. G. and Mr. Delia’s  involvement with Troop 45 goes back almost 25 years. Mr G. and Mr. D’Elia were fathers of Troop 45 Eagle Scouts and before we were members of the Troop we both were Cubmasters of Pack 246

Both Steve and Frank were scouts as boys while Steve was a Scout as a boy in Troop 45 in Port Jefferson and has long had a love for camping and outdoor crafts and the wonderful experiences they can provide.

We both are strong believers in the "boy run" Boy Scout Troop and that our  job is really that of  advisor. The boys in the Troop elect their Patrol Leaders and the Senior Patrol Leader and these boys plan and run the program. Our job as adult leaders is to make sure the boys have the tools they need to run their program effectively and to be aware of heath and safety concerns.

We are indeed lucky in Troop 45 to have a long history of dedicated adult leaders.  That trend continues today and we are blessed with devoted Assistant Scoutmasters and Committee People who work very hard for our boys.  Troop 45 is not a Troop that rests on our past achievements but rather a Troop with an active exciting program.

We are  very fortunate to have an outstanding young man as our Senior Patrol leader, Cameron Duic  Troop 45 is proud to have Cameron at the healm. 

Please feel free to bring any concerns you may have to us at any time. The one desire all the adult leaders of our Troop share is to provide the best program for the boys in Troop 45. I hope you’ll join us in making sure that we do that for all the boys in our Troop.
