Welcome to Boy Scout 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; Philmont backpacking treks; long-distance cycling trips; and weekend hiking, canoeing and camping trips. For more information, contact Scoutmaster Brian Johnson at scoutmaster439md@gmail.com.

Hi Troop,

I hope you all enjoyed that long weekend!
We are attending the Klondike Derby this year! This is one of the few 2 night campouts of the year - that means twice the fun! We will be freezing, racing, winning, freezing, eating, cooking, and freezing ALL TOGETHER!

Dues Info Plus Health and Release Forms Post

Posted on Oct 2 2017 - 2:52pm
Welcome to October!  This announcement provides important info on Dues and Health Forms for Boy Scout Troop 439 for 2017-18
The Troop must have on file Health Forms A and B for every Scout.  These files should be updated yearly.  If you went to Goshen last summer, you would have had these files filled out then and we do not require updated files (unless something has changed), but non-Goshen Scouts should fill these out and return to the Scoutmaster at a meeting.  These forms do not require a doctor's visit (see link – Form C not required.) 
The Troop must have a General Release form on file to attend any outing.  This form is mandatory only when the Scout enters the Troop, but circumstances may require it to be updated (I.e. change in insurance or emergency contact info.) We recommend filling it out yearly - please fill out and return to the Scoutmaster (see link.) 
Dues are the same as last year - $150.  Please make check payable to Troop 439.  They may be turned in at the meeting to the Scoutmaster or mailed to Scott Kabat, c/o Troop 439, 3510 Sandy Court, Kensington, MD  20895.  Please pay by October 31 -  a late fee will be charged for current Scouts who have not paid by that time. 
Not coming back this year?  Need a change/addition/subtraction in emails for our website/email system?  Address change? Pleaseemail kabatscouts@yahoo.com with updates to email/address/registration.   Did you know that for emails from our email system with the Troop (may show up on your email as [announce] or announce@kensington439.mytroop.us), that hitting REPLY is the same as REPLY ALL – your response goes to everyone in the troop?  Please be careful when hitting REPLY on those emails..
