Welcome to Troop 616's web site


NYLT 2019


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.

Rocketry Campout - October 19 - 20, 2019

This past October, Troop 616 traveled to Kramer Junction to launch rockets in the desert. We conducted over 30 launches and several nighttime launches. The boys then earned the Space Exploration Merit Badge, under the supervision of Mr. Mike Comer, using the new experience that they gained from launching rockets. Overall, they had fun, gained great experience, and a merit badge. Attached below are pictures of the outing.
