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.

Summer Camp 2015 - New Location

Posted on Apr 27 2015 - 8:31pm

UPDATE 4-27-2015

To keep the same week for the summer camp, we are now heading to Forest Lawn Scout Reservation.  I have uploaded the Leaders Guide on the troop website (July 12) where you can find a plethora of info about this campsite.   This campsite is located at Cedar Glen, close to Lake Arrowhead.     To compensate our trouble for the the transition, the new council will not request additionl fee from the registered participants (given that Forest Lawn costs more per individual), with the additional incentives of $20 discount per person on the fee and a $20 credit per person to be used at the trading post.  The full payment to the troop is still $450 and any remaining balance after the logistics expenditure will be equally refunded back to the participants.    You may still sign-up but I need your full payment of $450 to secure additional spots with the new camp administration.

Welcome new scout!
