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.

Please go to: https://donations.scouting.org/#/council/039/appeal/4151 to donate.  Make sure you indicate that the donation is coming from Troop 616.

Troop 616 is going to Camp Cherry Valley this Summer 2021!

Posted on Jan 31 2021 - 8:25pm
Yes, you read that right!  We're going to Camp Cherry Valley this summer.  We did not go to summer camp last year because of concerns about the Summer Camp experience in light of all the COVID-19 restrictions.  While summer camp won't quite look like it has in the past, it will still be an amazing experience for scouts!

The cost is $775 per scout and the first payment of $200 is due by March 1st.
