Are you interested in an exciting program for kids 11 to 18 years old? Check out Troop Six, one of the oldest Boy Scout Troops in Berkeley.
Scouting promotes character, citizenship, and fitness. St. John’s Church has sponsored the troop since its founding in 1929.
The troop features a regular outdoor program including hikes, service projects, and a variety of weekend camps and backpacking trips throughout the year. The troop conducts its own two-week summer camp at Utica Reservoir in the Sierras. This “wilderness” camp is run by the older scouts and the troop staff with the help of the parents. Every six years the troop plans a major trip in lieu of summer camp. In 2014 the troop went to Alaska, spending two weeks whitewater rafting/canoeing, backpacking, and going by train through Denali Park. Other years have included trips to Hawaii, Grand Tetons, San Juan Islands.
Scouts learn about being self-reliant, working together, making friends, and having fun. Troop 6 welcomes all kids 11-18 years old. We choose adult leaders based only on their leadership qualities, emphasizing the safety, rights and dignity of all.
