Known as Scouts BSA Troop 233 for Girls Bethesda prior to the February 1, 2019 program start, our unit is now officially registered as Scouts BSA Troop 4 Bethesda.
During the school year, our troop will meet three Mondays per month at Concord-St. Andrews UMC at the intersection of Goldsboro and River Roads in Bethesda, MD. Our girls will plan, organize, and lead these meetings along with monthly campouts and other outdoor activities. Annual summer activities include a week-long camp at Goshen Scout Reservation for the entire troop and an additional high adventure activity chosen by our older girls (aged 14 - 17). They may choose to attend a World Scout Jamboree and meet thousands of fellow Scouts from around the world. On their Scouting journey, our girls can earn their way to becoming an Eagle Scout.
Our program is an exciting, challenging platform for all of our girls and their friends. The setting encourages girls to participate in making choices, lead, learn valuable life skills, and experience the adventure of adult-like activities in a safe, supervised environment.
As our girls enjoy their Scouting experience, their efforts align with the aims of Scouting, which are to build youth into quality citizens and leaders by developing character, fostering citizenship, and promoting personal fitness.
