Established in 1989, Troop 945 of Damascus, Maryland offers opportunities for boys ages 11-17 to experience the outdoors, learn outdoor skills, provide community service and grow in leadership through a structured advancement program. We strive to be a scout-run, scout-led organization as much as possible. All new scouts are welcome; no previous scouting experience is required.  Troop 945 serves scouts from various public and private schools in and around the Damascus area. We have about 30 registered boys on our roster. Troop meetings are held at the forested Izaak Walton League-Damascus Chapter (26430 Mullinix Rd 21771), with facilities that include a wooded area for campouts, group firepit, screened-in cook house and a heated building.  While access to many parts of our website is granted only to members of our troop (by login), we would be happy to hear from any interested families (Menu-Contact Us).

Some highlights of our program include camping, outdoor cooking, backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, Klondike Derby, Mulch Sale, Merit Badge Weekend and summer camp.  We also regularly have boys participate in BSA high adventure trips to Philmont-New Mexico, Seabase-Florida and Northern Tier- Minnesota/Canada. Over seventy-five Troop 945 scouts have attained Eagle rank (Menu-Eagle History).
