BSA Troop 851 is located in Ellicott City, Maryland. We are sponsored by the Ellicott City Epiphany Lutheran Church and are part of the BSA Baltimore Area Council. We meet at the VFW in Ellicott City on Tuesday nights. Troop 851 is led by ScoutMaster Ron Whitehead, with the help of Assistant ScoutMasters, John Straumanis and Steve Tessier. We are a boy-led troop with adult guidance and supervision. Troop 851 believes in the core beliefs of the Boy Scouts, focusing on self development, morality, and just plain fun. The boys decide on their activities and location of their monthly camping trips, and incorporate hiking, biking, swimming, white water rafting, high adventure sports, skiing/snowboarding and more. Every July, the boys go away for a week long Summer Camp and have already voted to attend Camp Nobebosco again next year.
