September 30th (6PM)-October 1st (12noon).   Scouts (and adults) will head off to Camp Hermes to assist MDS Council at their annual Webel-o-ree.  Webel-o-ree is a weekend campout for Webelos II Scouts and their parents to learn about Boy Scouting.  Troop Scouts will stay one night in Camp Hermes counselor cabins, have a troop campfire program, then rise early to a quick breakfast and then lead Webelos to their tent area.  Scouts will discuss how to choose a good site for pitching their tent and what actions to take in case of extreme weather events. Great opportunity to help the troop's Council, Mt Diablo Silverado, earn service hours, show leadership, show scout spirit, plus have a great time with the troop at Camp Hermes!  Sign up on the troop website today! We need all scouts to do a Good Turn and help their troop and younger scouts.

Due to low participation levels by our troop, several of the BART station signs ups were cancelled. We were able to secure more dates for the end of September and for the month of October.


The popcorn fundraiser is a vital part of funding for our summer camps. The income from the popcorn fundraiser will be used to offset the costs for ALL scouts attending summer camp. For this reason, ALL scouts who plan on attending summer camp in 2017, are requested to sign up for at least one sales session, sell popcorn online and/or individually.

To sell popcorn online, please assist your scout in visiting “sell.trails-end.com” to set up a page online.

Daniel de Monteiro Eagle Scout Project: Building Computers - Oct. 22 & 23

Posted on Sep 22 2016 - 1:59pm

Scouts are to meet at Daniel's home at 9:00AM. They will be learning how to build a computer from scratch. After that, scouts will actually build the computer from start to finish. Scouts will earn community service hours that can be put towards rank advancements. Once completed, these computers will be donated to the Boys and Girls Club of the Diablo Valley in Martinez. Refreshments and lunch will be served during the project. Thanks ahead of time.

Limited to 8 scouts per day.  Please sign up on the troop website.

Parent Volunteers Needed

Posted on Sep 19 2016 - 9:46am

***Parent Volunteer Policy***

We cannot accomplish as much or attend as many outings without parent volunteers.  For this reason, we need ALL parents to take on a responsibility.  For any family that does not take on a responsibility there will be a non-volunteer fee of $150. As the scout year is coming to a close, the committee will be evaluating current volunteer contributions. Please contact Renee Brooks if you are interested in volunteering.

Thank you Alesia Alvarado for volunteering to be our District Roundtable Liaison!! -
