To have an efficient Boy led Troop offering Leadership and Training
while having fun and learning some life skills along the way.
About Our Troop:
Troop 609 is part of the Boy Scouts of America, Western Los Angeles County Council, Bill Hart District. We generally have between 20 and 35 scouts. Troop 609 has been around since 1968. Like most scout troops, we use the patrol method; each scout is part of a patrol of 6 to 8 boys generally of the same age or rank. There are scouts of all ages involved in the troop. We participate in a variety of activities through the year, including backpacking, car camping, family camping, Camporee and others. One recent event was a visit to Camporee of 2014 (Pictures from our recent adventures/historian page)
The troop attends summer camp every year. This is a weeklong (Sunday to Saturday) session at an established scout camp. It's fun an excellent opportunity for new scouts to earn rank advancements and merit Badges. It's also a great opportunity for patrols and troop to bond. Summer Camp is a good way to meet other scouts from other troops and it may be a learning experience for the parents as well!
