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.

Hiking Merit Badge Class is Starting!

Posted on Jan 23 2017 - 8:04am

If you are interested in getting some exercise, learning about Orange County's history and picking up a merit badge that counts toward Eagle, sign up for this one!  Orientation class has been moved from Tuesday Jan 24 to Feb 7, 6:30 pm at NCP.  We will then be taking 5 half-day hikes in the coming months, capped off with a full day hike, probably in May or June.  You will learn about hike planning and safety, conditioning, map reading, and a little first aid.  Hiking Merit Badge will satisfy the some requirements for Tenderfoot and Second Class as well as give you a good head start on Orienteering and Wilderness Survival merit badges at summer camp, if you're interested.  The first few hikes will be on Sun Feb 5, Sun Feb 19, and Sat Mar 4.  The Orientation Class Feb 7 is required to earn the merit badge - if you have a conflict, contact Mr. Kluksdahl at tkluksdahl@yahoo.com - we can work something out.  If you want to just do the hikes but not the merit badge, that's fine too.

We will be moving the January 21st campout to late February or March when we have better weather. If you have paid the $ 35, it can be applied towards the re-scheduled campout. Sorry for all the changes.
