Culp Valley Campout

If you're new to Scouts and thinking about joining the program, or are currently a Cub Scout looking for a troop to join, we hope that you'll consider Troop 648.  Scouting is a great program, offering a wide range of opportunities for boys ages 11 - 17.  Boy Scout troops vary widely in size, activities, and programs.  When looking for a troop to join, it's important to make sure you have a "good fit" – that is, its leaders, its activities, and overall "feel" are a good match. Troop 648 sets our activities to best meet both the immediate and long term needs of our Scouts. 

We strive to maintain a balanced program of activities throughout the year to challenge the Scouts both mentally and physically, emphasizing leadership and character development in the Scouting tradition. Our activities during the past year serve as examples of the program you can expect from Troop 648 in the years ahead (for a list of past activities, click on the “About Us” link in the menu on the left).

Scouting is far more than camping, hiking, and games. Scouting is also about character, values, and community service. As a Boy-led troop, Troop 648 emphasizes the values embodied in the Scout Law and our Scouts regularly participate in a wide range of community support activities.

We hope that Troop 648 will be part of your Scouting experience. Should you have any questions, or would like to arrange a visit to one of our troop meetings, please use the “Contact Us” link in the menu on the left.

Yours in Scouting,

Ron Lawrence, Scoutmaster
2012 Scoutmaster of the Year, San Diego-Imperial County Council

Service Projects : Feeding America : January, February & March 2014

Posted on Feb 10 2014 - 12:03pm

Dear Scouts & Parents,
!! Our opening service event for 2014 was a great success !!

On January 23rd, 12 youth and 7 adults from T648 volunteered at Feeding America. Our scouts packed 600 backpacks in 2 hours (amazing work). This is food that goes home with under privileged kids, so they have a few healthy meals during the weekend. We also cleaned and prepped ~1100 Lbs of produce that will go to their partner programs including community kitchens. (see highlights in attached pdf)
