For Senior Webelos and their Parents


Arrow of Light

Now that you are on your way to earning your Arrow of Light, it’s time to start thinking about continuing your Scouting journey and joining a Boy Scout Troop!

We hope you have enjoyed your time as a Cub Scout and you are ready for some new challenges, new experiences, and new skills! 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!
