Scouts crave adventure and Troop 849 delivers. We schedule a year-round calendar of outdoor activities, including:
- Rock climbing
The troop's week-long visit to a summer camp and the week-long trek into the Sierras are annual highlights.
Safety is always our first concern. Scouts learn to experience the outdoors with skill and confidence.
While learning about self-reliance, Scouts also learn the value of teamwork, camaraderie, and experiencing the world around them.
Troop 849 has a long history of helping Scouts climb the ladder of achievement.
We are proud of our ever-growing Eagle Scout Honor Roll, which recognizes over 130 Scouts who have obtained Scouting's highest and most coveted rank.
But achievement is emphasized for all Scouts in the troop, not just those aiming for Eagle.
Our weekly troop meetings include sessions aimed at helping Scouts attain any of the many merit badges that Scouting offers.
Our patrol structure is designed to encourage Scouts to take on more leadership and responsibility as their skills grow.
We encourage public service through a variety of service projects that enhance our community.
Scouting wouldn't be Scouting without a healthy dose of fun.
Our troop members love the experience of camping and hiking, and the sense of exploration that goes along with it.
Our weekly troop meetings regularly feature activities whose main purpose is enjoyment.
It's all about balance - and the combination of adventure, achievement and fun that you'll find in Scouting is unbeatable.
