Mt. View CA
Boy scout Troop 80 is based in Mountain View California, attracting scouts from Sunnyvale, Los Altos, Palo Alto, Saratoga, Cupertino, Sunnyvale, and Fremont.
Leadership and organizational skills are learned through classic outdoor activities.
This very active, small troop goes backpacking, rock climbing, orienteering, canoeing, and servicing the community. Known as The Rock Climbing Troop or The Tarp Tent Troop, the boys love hearty traditions.
Troop 80 scouts are responsible for their own growth. Rank advancement, merit badges and skills are coached and encouraged, but the scouts set their pace. Advancement is not handed to them. Instead, they learn that work and effort result in accomplishments. It is truly a scout led troop with an Eagle rate more than twice the national average.
