Welcome !

Welcome to the Boy Scout Troop 676 website! We are located in the San Diego, CA community of Rancho Peñasquitos. The troop meets on Monday nights at 7pm at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church. There are about 75 scouts in our Troop, ranging in rank from Tenderfoot to Eagle. We enjoy backpacking, tent campouts, and other activities which include an active High Adventure program.

Our Troop's mission is to cultivate and to nurture the high ideals of Scouting in all of the Troop's youth members. This will be accomplished through moral strength and character development, good citizenship training, and the development of physical, mental, and emotional fitness.

Cotton Clothing

Posted on Nov 24 2014 - 10:02am

We have talked about how cotton clothing is a bad idea on camping trips due to its poor performance in bad weather. Despite this I still see a few scouts and parents wearing cotton, even on high adventure outings where rescue is distant. This article does a great job explaining what is wrong with cotton. For those of you that think hypothermia is a rare occurence, be aware that we have had it happen twice now on our troop outings.

Happy Thanksgiving - to all families.
