Welcome to Troop 839, one of the most outstanding Boy Scout troops in Kingwood. We pride ourselves as being a "camping and water activities" troop. We are proud of our Scouts who take part in the outdoor experience.  Scouting is a rewarding adventure for boys as they mature and grow in skills, leadership, and confidence.

Troop 839 is part of the Boy Scouts of America, which was founded February 8, 1910. The Kingwood area is part of the Flaming Arrow District of the Sam Houston Area Council. Troop 839 was first chartered in 1985, and is sponsored by the First Presbyterian Church of Kingwood.

We meet every Monday except for the Monday following the monthly camping activity. Meetings are held from 7:00 to 8:39 at First Presbyterian Church of Kingwood, located at 5520 Kingwood Drive.

We have weekend campouts every month except during the Summer. We leave Kingwood from the parking lot of the church on Friday evening and return on Sunday afternoon to the parking lot at Luby's at the front of Kingwood. Most of our campouts are at BSA camps, state or national parks, or private land within 200 miles of Houston. Summer camp is usually one week during the summer. Winter camp is for three days in January. Scout leaders and parents provide transportation to and from campouts.
