Update on Troop 61 Meetings & Activities

As of March 12, the troop’s use permit for the rooms used to hold our troop meetings at Sandpiper school has been suspended.  This will be in effect through April 5th at which time the district will re-evaluate the situation. 

The troop adult leaders decided to postpone all meetings and activities until at least April 5th. Once the troop is able to resume meetings at the regular location, more information will be provided about rescheduling the planned events.

Wishing you all good health!

Welcome

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.

Scoutmaster Joel McCandless
