Welcome To Agoura Hills Troop 127 WebSite !

Boy Scout Troop 127 is chartered to Business and Professional Optimists Club of Conejo Valley. The Troop meets most Monday nights from 7:00 pm until around 8:30 pm at Agoura Bible Fellowship located at 5564 Foothill Drive in Agoura Hills.

Troop 127’s active calendar features up to 25 overnight outings each year. The Troop attends two residential Boy Scout Camps each summer, one of which is Emerald Bay in beautiful Catalina. The Troop also has an active high adventure component, attending one of the country’s three high adventure bases each year on a rotating basis. The Troop’s high adventure program also features backpacking, snow sports, 50-mile canoe trips on the Colorado River, mountain biking, climbing, and shooting sports outings with certified, trained leaders as members of the Troop.

 The Troop program is diverse and the Scouts themselves decide on locations and activities. From snow camping to beach camping, the calendar has something for everyone. Annual national park trips to Yosemite, Sequoia, Death Valley, or Joshua Tree are also part of the annual outing plan. A Tenderfoot Overnighter helps new scouts start off right each May.

The Troop embraces the Patrol method, where Scouts in groups of 8-10 cook their own meals, organize themselves, and coordinate their activities in conjunction with Troop activities. Scouts in our Troop have the opportunity to develop leadership skills through the Troop’s boy-led activities. Scouts in leadership roles meet monthly to plan and carry out the yearly Troop calendar. Once planned, the whole Troop participates in organizing the event and making it a success.

The Troop prides itself on developing Scouts who are highly adept at Scout Skills, such as knot tying, orienteering, and first aid. Each Scout’s trail to Eagle Scout is more about the journey than the destination. Scouts in Troop 127 grow memories that last a lifetime, as the program helps youth develop into responsible, independent young men.
