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.

During this Tuesday's regular scout meeting, there will be a slideshow of this past summer's Philmont trek .  It will be fun and very informational for all parents interested in what happens at Philmont.  Parents of the scouts who went this summer and parents of potential future Philmont treks should definitely see this slide show.  All past Philmont scouts , please attend.  I know some of you may have conflicts but please try to attend.  The anticipated time slot for our presentation is 7:30 to 8:00 or so.  Philmont treks are in high demand and applications are done 2 years in advance.  Our troop needs to sign up for the summer 2018 Philmont trek.  Therefore, if you are interested, we will need a headcount and non-refundable deposit of $100 per person by November 2016.  Plan and Commit!
