A letter from our Scoutmaster

Our Troop’s History

Our troop was founded on May 5th, 1955 and is sponsored by Grace Episcopal Church. Since the Troop was chartered we have had 60 Scouts achieve the rank of Eagle. Our Eagle projects have helped local communities, schools, churches, and charities.

Scouting Events

Throughout the year our scouts have participated in white-water rafting down the Colorado River, rock-climbing and rappelling in Joshua Tree National Park, week-long camps in Kings Canyon and mountain biking in Moab, Utah. Every year we try to squeeze in backpacking, mountain biking, hiking, canoeing, rock-climbing, wilderness survival camping, outdoor cooking competitions, rifle and shotgun shooting events, and orienteering.

Merit Badges

Merit badges are awards earned by youth members of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), based on activities within an area of study by completing a list of periodically updated requirements. The purpose of the merit badge program is to allow Scouts to examine subjects to determine if they would like to further pursue them as a career or a vocation.
