Are you up for adventure?

For over 20 years, BHEA has chartered Troop 442 of Boy Scouts of America (BSA).  Many of our boys have earned the coveted Eagle rank, and this accomplishment has rewarded them with everything from leadership skills, to a new-found confidence in what they can achieve, to more tangible things like scholarships or higher starting pay grades in some careers. Few things are more impressive on a college or job application than the designation "Eagle Scout."

Do you love hanging out with your friends and hiking, camping, or just working on projects together? Contact our Scoutmaster to arrange to come by for a visit at one of our regular meetings or patrol outings. Check the BHEA Calendar tab for our meeting dates, time, and location.

Troop 442 is part of the Great Smoky Mountains Council in the Cades Cove District. Troop meetings are the 2nd and 4th Monday of every month from 7 - 8:30pm. The current Scoutmaster is Mike Williams. Email [email protected] for more info!
