Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 57 - Great Bridge, Chesapeake, Virginia
Any River, Any Mountain, Any Trail...Bring It On!
 

Troop 57 is a large and dynamic Boy Scout Troop with over 90 Eagle Scouts since our original charter. Thanks to our active boy leadership, supportive parents, and generous adult volunteers we promote an environment of fun, adventure, and leadership development that teaches our young men the values and morals they need to become outstanding citizens in our community and nation.

We meet Monday evenings from 7:30-9:00pm at Great Bridge Presbyterian Church, 333 Cedar Road in the Great Bridge area of Chesapeake, Virginia.
