We are Scouts BSA Troop 709!

 

Leaving for Summer Camp 2018

Welcome!  We are Scouts BSA Troop 709, Ashland, VA!

Scouts BSA Troop 709 Boy Unit & Troop 709 Girl Unit serves the areas of central and western Hanover County and beyond.  We are sponsored by First Baptist Church, 800 Thompson St. Ashland, VA.  We meet every Tuesday evening from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Ellis Hall on the north entrance of the building.

BECAUSE OF COVID-19 - 709 TROOP MEETINGS FOR BEGINNING IN MARCH 2021

WE WILL BE BACK AT FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH ASHLAND OUTSIDE

ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE BUILDING OUTSIDE ELLIS HALL.

Guests considering us are always welcome at our troop meetings!

Whether you are new to Scouting and you're curious about what Scouting is all about; or a graduating Cub Scout who is considering their new home for Scouting; or an established Scout looking for an active Troop with an "old school" flavor, then please visit us at a meeting or use the "Contact Us" link in the bar at left.  We are excited to speak with you!

Our Leadership Team is passionate and always excited about our Scouting program, and we understand that while the program is Scout Led, it is important to still be Adult Mentored.  As Leaders, we strive every day to provide the leadership examples, high standards of conduct, Scouting knowledge, as well as emotional and spiritual nourishment that our young people need to grow into exceptional citizens and leaders.  We challenge our Scouts in many ways with the goal of building life resilience and strength of character.

Great News! Family Scouting is Here!

First Baptist Church Ashland and Troop 709 is participating in Family Scouting!

We are happy to announce that First Baptist Church Ashland is sponsoring

a new Cub Scout Pack for 1st through 5th grade boys and girls! 

This new initiative opens the robust BSA Scouting program that young boys have benefited from for so long and now offers those same life changing benefits to girls.  While they will meet in separate rooms on the same night in the same building, they will participate in the same program content, providing the opportunity for familes with both boys and girls to participate in Scouting on the same night at the same location! 

Stay tuned for information on live recruiting events, meeting nights, and much more

or to request more information go to 709Scouts.org
