Welcome

Welcome to Scouts BSA Troop 4640.  We are the first Scouts BSA troop for girls being formed in Pearland, TX.  We are chartered out Pearland First United Methodist Church, who also charters Scouts BSA Troop 464 (for boys), Venture Crew 464 and Family Cub Scout Pack 463.

We are holding an informational meeting at Pearland FUMC (Room 106) on Tuesday, January 15th at 7pm.  The meeting is for all girls, and their families, who are interested in joining the Scouts BSA.

Our first event will be an overnight campout on February 1st at the Troop 464 Scout House, which is located next to Pearland FUMC.  Girls will have an opportunity to  experience the Scouts BSA program, fellowship with other girls and join Troop 4640.  February 1st is the first day that girls across the country can join Scouts BSA, and we’d love to have you be a Founding Member of Troop 4640.

About Scouts BSA

What’s Changing? Click for larger image.

For the first time in its 100+ year history, the iconic program of the Boy Scouts of America will be open to young women. Scouts BSA is a year-round program for boys and girls in fifth grade through high school that provides fun, adventure, learning, challenge, and responsibility to help them become the best version of themselves.

For more than 50 years, the Boy Scouts of America has had fully co-ed programs. Since their founding in, 1953 the Sea Scouts have been co-ed.

The career exploration Explorer program has also been co-ed since its founding in 1969. In 1998 the high adventure Venturing program was spun off from the Explorer program, and has been co-ed since its founding.

These lesser-known programs have been wildly successful in training young men and women to be leaders, while allowing them to explore interests and hobbies that appeal to them. In 2018 the BSA opened the Cub Scouting program to girls through Family Scouting and girls-only packs.

On Feb 1st 2019, the BSA will be chartering its first girls troops under the new Scouts BSA banner. First UMC Pearland is excited to offer this new Scouting opportunity to girls in our community.
