Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 61 Based in Redwood Shores, CA.
We meet twice a month at Redwood Shores Elementary School. Our aim is to provide a safe and challenging learning environment for your son through the methods and ideals of the Boy Scouts of America. We will build character, foster friendships, and nurture citizenship through a dynamic outdoor program that challenges the boys to live by the Scout Oath and Law.
