BSA Scout Troop 255 focuses on having fun through outdoor adventure while fostering character development, leadership skills, and citizenship.
Founded in 1940, Scout Troop 255 is one of the oldest troops in Montgomery County. The Troop is chartered by Chevy Chase United Methodist Church, 7001 Connecticut Avenue, Chevy Chase, Maryland.
Troop 255 is open to all youth of any gender ages 11-18 with an interest in outdoor adventure, friendship, and fun. The Troop has approximately 50 scouts from Montgomery County and Washington, DC, reflecting the wide diversity of our community. In addition to weekly meetings, there are monthly campouts, summer camp, high adventure treks, and community service projects.
Troop 255 enjoys five decades of shared history with Cub Scout Pack 255 (K-5th grades). A majority of Troop 255 scouts began their scouting experience in Pack 255. Many others join as newcomers to scouting, or as relocated scouts from other areas.
Troop 255 is a youth-led organization, guided and supported by trained adult leaders and many other volunteers. BSA consistently recognizes Troop 255 for organizational excellence.
