Welcome to Scouts BSA Troop 439!

Troop 439 was formed in April 1951 by the United Methodist Men of St. Paul's United Methodist Church, Kensington MD. Since that time, more than 1,500 "T439" Scouts have participated in Troop activities designed to build Scouting skills, leadership experiences, and friendships. Over the years, T439 Scouts have participated in international and national Scouting Jamborees; HIgh Adventue treks at Philmont, Northern Tier and Sea Base; long-distance cycling trips; and weekend hiking, canoeing and camping trips.

The United Methodist Men and other stakeholders in the Troop are moving ahead with formation of a Girl Troop.  Please click here for full information on this exciting new phase for 439.

For more information about our organization, contact Scoutmaster Tucker Echols at scoutmaster439md@gmail.com.  Feel free to stop by any of our Troop Meetings to talk to us and see the Troop in action. The Troop meets at St. Paul's every Monday night when Montgomery County Public Schools are in session.

5/15 - Goshen Canceled

Posted on May 20 2020 - 1:22pm

As we all learned last week, NCAC elected to cancel Goshen summer camp for 2020.  We've submitted for the refund.  Once our Treasurer, Luis Espinoza, has the funds in the troop bank account, he will begin to issue refunds to all those who paid.  Please be patient.  It will take some time.  Stay safe!  Your Goshen Coordinator, Barbara Phillips

Posted on Apr 21 2020 - 11:53am

Just a repeat of previous messages from Goshen Director, Philip Barbash.  He must be getting a lot of the same questions.  However, he does say they are expecting a decision mid-May and he does encourage the sign ups as they will weigh in on the decision making. Find it at: https://kensington439.mytroop.us/node/2242.  Stay safe.  Your Goshen Chair, Barbra Phillips
