Welcome to Troop 616's web site

We have put together this information to help you get acquainted with Troop 616. Our troop offers monthly adventures such as camping, backpacking, snowboarding, canoeing, white water rafting, cycling, fishing, rock climbing and shooting model rockets. Troop 616 also provides bi-monthly meetings filled with hands-on activities, games and planning for upcoming weekend activities. By participating in the weekend activities and Troop meetings, Scouts have fun, create lasting friendships, and learn important skills. Scouts learn skills that range from cooking at a campout, to using a compass, to learning first aid techniques. Specific skills are described in your Boy Scout Handbook. Scouts are recognized for their achievements by advancing to higher level ranks, earning merit badges, and dozens have reached the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout.

    Scouts of Troop 616,  The annual Scouting for Food drive will be held on Saturday November 8, 2014.  For our Troop, we would like to have a inter patrol contest to see which patrol can donate the most canned goods, dry goods, and non-perishables.  The proceeds benefit Second Harvest Food Bank and many struggling families in Orange County.  We’d like to run this in two phases:  Phase 1)  Please bring your initial donations to the Troop meeting on Tuesday, Nov 4th for the first count.  Phase 2) will be at Mr. Stone’s house on Saturday Nov 8, at 9-10 am for the second count.  We will then take the donations to the local drop off area
