About our Troop

We are Troop 463. Troop 463 is chartered to and sponsored by Sandy Springs United Methodist Church. The Troop has been continuously active since April 1, 1965 when former Troop 236 (founded in 1941 as Troop 1, Sandy Springs) was split into two Troops.  Since 1965 almost 900 boys have belonged to the Troop; more than 200 of them have earned the rank of Eagle Scouts (as of 1/1/2016). Members of Troop 463 have gone on to be leaders in their communities, the state and in the nation. We are proud to say that some of these choose to stay active in the Boy Scouts of America as adult members.  We are a boy-run, active backpacking troop also known for our flag retirement ceremonies and service to our community.

We meet each Monday night, year-round, 7-8:30PM at the Scout Hut behind Sandy Springs United Methodist Church, . Visitors and alumni are always welcome.  If possible, please let us know you are coming by sending an email to info@sandysprings463.mytroop.us.  You can also follow us on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/troop463AAC/?ref=bookmarks.
