About Us

Troops 255 & 4255 offer a year-round adventure-based program designed to develop and encourage effective character, citizenship, and fitness training for youth, both girls and boys, ages 11-17.

In addition to camping, Scouts and adult leaders enjoy activities such as backpacking, mountain biking, canoeing, target-shooting, day hikes, as well as, giving back to the community through service projects and volunteering. Troop meetings are held every other Wednesday evening at 7:00pm at the Half Moon Bay Yacht Club.

Merit Badges

Merit badges are awards earned by youth members of the Scouts BSA (formerly known as "the Boy Scouts"), based on activities within an area of study by completing a list of periodically updated requirements. The purpose of the merit badge program is to allow Scouts to examine subjects to determine if they would like to further pursue them as a career or a vocation.

Scouting Events

Throughout the year our scouts have participated in white-water rafting, week-long camps and 50-miler hikes, mountain biking at Tamarancho and summers at Wente where they have the opportunity to earn merit badges in mountain biking, hiking, canoeing, wilderness survival, camping, outdoor cooking, shotgun, orienteering, archery, and many other activities.
