Welcome !

Welcome to the Boy Scout Troop 676 website! Established in 1989, 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.

Troop Guides

Posted on Jan 26 2015 - 5:21pm

We still need a few more Troop Guides to work with our incoming new scouts. This is a great leadership position and is open to any scout that can complete 1st Class before the new scout campout in March. Please talk to Jon Cline or Mr. Dyer if you are interested. Note that if you already have a leadership position you can still volunteer to be a Guide as the actual work will not start until March. We will have a planning meeting soon with pizza so I suggest signing up before then.

Last call for Cherry Valley secondary summer outing

Posted on Jan 26 2015 - 5:20pm

As a way to get back some of our deposit money for a scheduling error in 2013 the Troop signed up for a week of summer camp again this year at Cherry Valley on Catalina. This is NOT our troop summer camp. The troop is going to Lost Valley east of Temecula for summer camp.  This is an extra summer camp. There are no leaders signed up for this option and no Scouts have expressed an interest in going on this outing. The troop is preparing to cancel the reservation before payments are due at the end of the week, and is putting out a last call for anyone who is interested. The cost is $650 for each Scout, and requires 2 adults to attend. There may be some discounts depending on how many attend and if discounts still apply after canceling some reservations. The option has been announced in the meetings with no interest so this is the last call before the reservation is cancelled before payments are due.  The dates are July 5-July11. If interested please contact Mr. Cline before Jan 29.
