Welcome !

Welcome to Troop 876! We are a BSA Troop dedicated to girls aged 11 to 17 who like to camp, make friends, learn, and challenge themselves.

Scouting is all about adventure, family, leadership, and especially fun!

BSA strives to build a better future for your child by teaching them skills they'll carry with them into adulthood.

Our motto - Be Prepared - applies not only to the practical skills your scout will learn, but also the leadership and teamwork skills that will prepare them for the future.

It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.



Make sure medical forms are up to date!

Forms A and B medical forms are required for all Scouts and Adults who plan to participate with the troop on outings and Form C for anyone going to Camp (Adults and Scouts). Scouts going to Northern Tier should print the form from Northern Tier as it has an informational sheet regarding the extra challenges of going on a high adventure trip.
