Troop 1029


Welcome to Scouts BSA Troop 1029 for Girls

A Purpose Driven Troop

- Our values are the purpose, learning is the process, fun and personal growth are the result.

About Us:

Girls' Troop 1029 is located in Pike Creek area of Wilmington, Delaware. We were established in February 2019 and are now recruiting girls ages 11 to 17 (grades 6 - 12) to be part of our all-girl Scouts BSA troop linked to a successful, 65+ year old boys troop chartered by Red Clay Creek Presbyterian Church. All young ladies are welcome regardless of home address or school. Come visit a meeting or two and see how this Scouts BSA girl troop is Scout-led, where the youth plan and lead the program.

Leaders

The Troop is truly youth-led, youth-run and is heavily focused on youth leadership development. With guidance of the Scoutmaster and other adult leaders, the Scouts plan the program, conduct troop meetings, and provide leadership among their peers. We let them make mistakes (safely), but we also help them to learn from them.

Troop 1029 and Troop 29 Relationship

Girls' Troop 1029 is linked to Boys' Troop 29, a thriving 65+ year old troop chartered by Red Clay Creek Presbyterian Church in the Powder Mill District of the Del-Mar-Va Council of Boys Scouts of America.

Our troops are linked but operate as two separate troops - one for boys and one for girls that share a chartered organization and a troop committee. This format provides a foundation for our growing girl troop and is convenient for families as both troops meet on the same night.
