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.

Camperships Available

The Troop attempts to set aside money each year to assist Scouts registered with the troop whose families are experiencing financial hardship.  These funds are intended to defray the costs of a camping experience, long term or short term, for a scout who might not otherwise be able to attend.  Camperships are based on significant financial need (and similar to school programs) however financial documentation is not requested.  Please refer to the attached application for information.
