About Scouts BSA (formerly “Boy Scouts”)

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.

For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through over a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.  

We are extremely proud and excited that girls as well as boys can now benefit from the Scouts BSA program.

About Troop 1

As of February 1, 2019 Scouts BSA Girl Troop 1 was officially chartered. We are a girl only troop welcoming adventurous girls from ages 11-18. We serve the Bridgewater community and surrounding areas.  We started with 5 scouts and have grown to 30 amazing young women commuting from 10 different cities to join us.

We meet on Thursday nights from 7:00-8:30 at Pluckemin Presbyterian Church. We are an active Troop and typically have at least one trip or event per month.

Some of our favorite events and trips have been

  • an Orienteering competition, Klondike Derby, and the First Aid Meet (yes, we’re slightly competitive) 
  • rock scrambling in the Shawangunks,
  • a super challenging high ropes course,
  • rock wall and natural rock face climbing,
  • an excursion to Gettysburg,
  • camping in Hershey PA,
  • and of course Summer Camp!
