For Senior Webelos and their Parents


It’s time to start thinking about continuing your Scouting journey by joining a Boy Scout Troop!

We hope you have enjoyed your time as a Cub Scout and you are ready for some new challenges. Bethesda’s Troop 233 may be just the place for you! To help you learn about the fun and learning that awaits you at Bethesda’s Troop 233, we have created a series of events in which you can get to know our Scouts, Troop and leaders.

We are a boy-led troop that takes seriously the Scout Law and Oath, while also having fun. We bsa_logotypically have one camping or other outdoor activity each month, involving skills development, such as orienteering and cooking, and advancement. Check out this video of recent trips and activities. Also, take a look at our blog for descriptions and photos of recent camping trips. Don’t worry, we’ll help you build the skills and experience to tackle the most physically challenging trips!

The scouts of Troop 233 invite you to learn more about us, by coming to one of our meetings or participating in one of the events listed below. Of course, feel free to reach out to our recruitment committee for more information.
