Hello from Troop 463!

Troop 463 has served the communities surrounding Garrett Park, Maryland for over 50 years. We meet on Mondays from 7:30pm-9pm during the school year at Holy Cross Church on Strathmore Avenue. Our goal is to deliver a hands-on experience of leadership training through a program that combines high adventure opportunities and scout skills with a deep respect for community, country, and the environment. Troop 463 is a safe environment where every member is valued and welcome to participate.  
We are an active troop that loves to get outdoors.  In recent years, we have camped at Little Bennett Regional Park here in Montgomery County, where we participated in the Klondike Derby. We camped at Calvert Cliffs on the Chesapeake Bay and at Gettsyburg, where we hiked the historic battlefield. We have gone train backpacking, taking the train to Point of Rocks and then hiking and camping along the C & O Canal, and we have also taken cycling trips along the canal. We have participated in the Mountain Man Camporee and spent memorable weeks camping and earning Merit Badges at the Heritage Reservation in Western Pennsylvania. This past year, we went skiing at Roundtop Mountain and canoeing on the Pokemoke River.
