Boy Scout Troop 776
Boy Scout Troop 776 is a youth organization that aims to transform youth into young adults with high character and strong leadership. It is chartered by St. John the Evangelist Church in Encinitas and consists of local youth, ages 11 to 17, of all faiths and backgrounds. The Troop uses a fun program leveraging the outdoors and conservation to promote servant leadership, character development, citizenship, and faithfulness, as well as mental and physical fitness for every member. The Scout Oath and the Scout Law anchor the Scouts and embody what Scouts use as their “life’s compass."
Troop 776 Scouts perform community service by helping their chartered organization with family-friendly church activities such as annual community events and donation drives for the local needy. The Scouts also volunteer for civic duties such as performing color guard flag ceremonies, respectful flag retirement ceremonies, as well as local beach and park cleanup efforts.
All these experiences provide valuable instruction for the Scouts to be effective leaders in their Troop and in their community.
Troop 776 welcomes any youth aged 11-17, their parents or guardians, and interested volunteers to visit Troop meetings and events.
