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.

Aliso Caves Hike Sat 11/18-Sign Up Now!

Posted on Nov 12 2017 - 10:45pm

This will be a good, relaxing hike for all Scouts, but especially for new ones, because it is short (5 miles), flat and we'll be going over Second Class Navigation requirements 3a-3d.  Please sign up by Wed 9pm so we can arrange drivers.  We'll leave at noon, be back at 5pm.

2018 Dues - please sign up and make payment

Posted on Nov 2 2017 - 8:44am

Please go to November 19 on the calendar and sign up (or indicate regret) for 2018 membership in the Troop by this date.  Annual rechartering requires a lot of paperwork and costs and we would appreciate it if everyone lets us know their status asap.
