About Us

Welcome to the website of Scouts BSA Troops 81B and 81G of Chelmsford, Massachusetts!  We’re glad you stopped by. 

We are chartered by Aldersgate United Methodist Church, located at 242 Boston Rd., Chelmsford, MA 01824. 

We are proud to tell you that we are a linked boys and girls troop.  On February 1, 2019, for the first time ever, girls could join in the life changing program that is Boy Scouts – now called Scouts BSA.  We are the only troop in Chelmsford that currently offers this opportunity to our community.  Our doors are open to anyone (11 – 17yrs old) regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity.  

Our Troop Philosophy is: We are a youth-led troop whose focus is on developing youth leadership by using the patrol system and providing a year-round calendar of balanced activities, including outdoor adventure, life skills, and community services.

Due to COVID, we currently meet outside Aldersgate United Methodist Church every Wednesday from 7:00 – 8:00PM.  Our Scoutmasters are Michael McClusky (Troop 81B) and Shelly Outwater (Troop 81G).
