About Us



"Scouting is a game for boys under the leadership of boys under the direction of a man."

This quote from Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of Boy Scouts is the guiding principle for the leadership team (both youth and adults) of Troop 1602.  We are a Strong Boy Scout Troop with more than 75 scouts and around 40 trained adults. Boy Scouts is for boys ages 11-17.  Policies for our Troop come from National (Irving, Texas), Council (Orange County), https://www.saddlebackdistrict.org (Saddleback) and our own Troop Committee.  We encourage you to learn more about the Boy Scouting Program and get involved.  Click on Visitor Resources to learn more about us.
