On February 1st, 2019 we launched the first girls troop on Bainbridge Island. This all girl troop focuses on outdoor adventure and building youth leadership. Our scouts have plenty of opportunities for camping, hiking, climbing, rafting, skiing, swimming, biking, fishing and much, much more. The scouts chose the number 1804 in honor of the year Sacajawea joined the Lewis & Clark trail. Like her, the scouts of Troop 1804 are trailblazers and pioneers, working to become some of the first women Eagle Scouts in the country. Girls ages 11-18 are welcome to join. To learn more please attend our next meeting.
Troop 1564 has been serving boys in our Bainbridge community for over 25 years. This boy led troop prides itself on being youth led and seeking outdoor adventure in the Pacific Norhtwest and beyond. Camping is fun. Surviving a downpour in the middle of the night is an adventure. Cooking over a campfire is fun. Learning which wild berries are edible is survival. Spending a weekend in the woods is fun. Breaking camp without leaving a trace is admirable. These are invaluable experiences that can be had in Scouting. These are life lessons that transform today’s Scouts into tomorrow’s leaders. If interested in joining, please visit us at our next meeting.
