Welcome to the Troop 609 Scout Managed web-site

About Our Troop:

Troop 609 is part of the Boy Scouts of America in the Western Los Angeles County Council, Bill Hart District. We generally have about 40-50 scouts. We were founded in 1970 and have been chartered by the First Presbyterian Church of Newhall for the last 30+ years. Like most scout troops, we use the patrol method where each scout is part of a smaller patrol boys. There are scouts of all ages and ranks involved in the troop. We are year-round, all-weather, and participate in a very active outdoors program with a variety of trips and activities throughout the year, including backpacking, car camping, hiking and others. (see some pictures from our recent adventures/historian page)

Our Vision

To have an efficient Boy led Troop offering Leadership and Training

while having fun and learning some life skills along the way.


Our Troop has 119 Eagle Scouts!  Note, a Scout must decide it is a personal goal to earn the Eagle rank.  We are supportive, but we do not push for it.
