Boy scout Troop 80 is based in Mountain View California, attracting scouts from Sunnyvale, Los Altos, Palo Alto, Saratoga, Cupertino, Sunnyvale, and Fremont.
Learn leadership and organizational skills through classic outdoor activities.
This very active, small troop goes backpacking, rock climbing, orienteering, canoeing, and servicing the community. The Rock Climbing Troop or The Tarp Tent Troop loves hearty traditions.
Rank advancement, merit badges and skills are coached and encouraged, but the scouts set their pace and are responsible for their own growth. 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.
