 The troop is a scout-led troop where the boys decide, lead, and participate in their monthly trips, activities, and service projects.

The troop meets at 7 PM every Monday evening (except during the summer) at St. Timothy's Episcopal Church.  Boys from all faiths are welcome.

Eagle Scout Project Helps Open Space
August 2020:  Joshua Negron's Eagle Scout project of a welcome kiosk to Gonzales Canyon Open space was completed.

Gonzales Canyon is used extensively by hikers and mountain bikers due to its close proximity and easy access by Torrey Pine, Del Mar and Carmel Valley residents.
