Welcome to BSA Girls Troop 678 - Mercer Island, WA, established February 2019!

For the first time in 100+ years of Scouting history, girls are now able to join BSA!  The historic move means girls, just like boys, now get to experience the values-based, life-changing, Instagram-worthy moments offered in all of Scouting’s programs — from Cub Scouting all the way to Scouting’s highest honor, the rank of Eagle Scout. 

Interested in joining in our inaugural year as a founder or just want some information to think about it?  Send us an email: infotroop678@gmail for more information and/or  join us at our weekly meeting set every Tuesday 7:15 - 8:30 PM, except for non-school days.

Classes will be held by Chris Belden and should start May 18th, held just before the troop meetings every Tuesday night through mid-June. Both require time over the summer to complete, so now is a great time to get started.
