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.

We will be having our October Skills Training October 18th from 11 am to 1 pm in Deerfield Community Park. This is a new park for us to do Skills Training since NCP is booked and it s close to Mr. Darst's house. We will NOT be meeting at NCP in Northwood and we will probably meet at this park in the future for Skills Training.

2016 Philmont

Posted on Oct 9 2014 - 12:15pm

Planning for Philmont 2016 begins now.  If you are interested in going to Philmont in the summer of 2016, please contact Hilton Yee (hilton.yee@gmail.com) and provide input for dates.  See Menu items on the right under "2016 Philmont Trek".  Philmont Scout Ranch is the Boy Scouts of America's largest national High Adventure Base. Its 34 staffed camps and 55 trail camps provide an unforgettable adventure in the high country along hundreds of miles of rugged, rocky trails.  This hiking/camping trip is considered by many to be the ultimate highlight of a scout's experience. Scouts should be 14 by time of the trek.  So I encourage all scouts who will be 14 or older to sign up and go!
