Boy Scout Troop 247
(Baltimore, Maryland)

Are you wondering if Boy Scouting is for you?


Stop in at Baltimore Co. Game and Fish @ 3400 Northwind Road to see us in action every Tuesday from 7PM - 8:30 (unless Baltimore County Schools are closed for bad weather). 

We are a "boy-led" unit. That means YOUTH MEMBERS make the decisions regarding trip destinations, program ideas, and camp/meeting activities.  When planning our agenda, the Scouts are given ONE instruction... "MAKE IT FUN".  They get as creative as they can be when picking fun/exciting destinations and building in as much adventure as they can think of.

If this sounds like something you'd be interested in joining, we'd love to have you visit us for a night or two and see how things go.  There's always room for 1 more!

 We're sure you'll find something you like!
