Welcome to Troop 36. We are a Boy Scout troop based in Danville, California. We were founded in 1969 by our sponsor, St. Timothy's Episcopal Church.
We have an extensive outdoor program based on the Boy Scouts' Outdoor Code. We typically have an activity occurring nearly every weekend. Every year we go on several pre-Camporee events to prepare new scouts for the Council’s Camporee event. We attend a week-long session at Camp Wolfeboro. Older scouts have the option of attending a week long camp on Catalina Island. And our oldest and most adventurous scouts can attend a yearly High Adventure trip to places like Philmont Scout Camp, the John Muir Trail, and National Parks in Alaska. Throughout the year, we have weekend outings such as Caving, Snow Camping, Wilderness Survival, Biking, and Motor Boating. We have Troop meetings and outings year-round. Check out our Bulletin to see what is happening now.
The Troop firmly advocates being a “Boy Run” troop. Our scouts develop, plan, and execute the program – meetings and outings. They are responsible for choosing the meeting topics and delivering the content. They are also responsible for selecting outing types and locations and then working through their planning and execution. We follow this approach because we find it provides the best learning experience possible. Many troops advocate this approach, but we believe we take it further than most.
Our goal is to build boy leaders utilizing the Scout Oath and Scout Law as guidelines. Each scout has an opportunity to develop character, citizenship, and physical and mental fitness. Focusing on an outdoors-oriented environment, the members of Troop 36 are provided with opportunities for leadership development and the learning of skills in a variety of areas. We provide many opportunities to advance through the Boy Scout ranks – we are proud of our many scouts that have made it to the Eagle Rank. The over-riding principals are that the scouts are provided a safe environment to grow and develop and in the process, have fun.
