Welcome !

This is the official website of Boy Scout Troop 57, chartered by Heatherwood Baptist Church, based in Newnan, Georgia.  We are an active group of Scouts and Scouters committed to living the Scout Oath and Law.

Our Mission is to develop skills, strong character, and Scout craft skills in boys of our community.  More than ever, America needs the leadership qualities, citizenship awareness, and character development that Boy Scouting can provide.

As a Scout-run organization, we utilize the skills and leadership abilities of our Scouts to conduct creative and engaging activities, meetings, and outings. Involved Scouts, Scouters and parents provide opportunities for our Scouts to participate in training, service, leadership, and advancement opportunities.

We meet on Thursday Evenings at 6:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. year-round.
