Welcome!

We are based in the Chevy Chase / Bethesda / Kensington region of Maryland and provide opportunities for girls from ages 11-17 to experience the outdoors, learn outdoor skills, provide community service, and grow through leadership experience in a well-structured program. We started in 2019 and our sponsoring organization is The Westlake-Troop 8 BSA Memorial Foundation. William Westlake was a Boys Troop 8 Scoutmaster for 35 years and bequeathed his estate for the benefit of youth organizations in the Washington DC area. For more information about us, including our history, our Boys Troop 8, and the Westlake Foundation, please visit our public website.
