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.

Scouting for Food TIME! - Important Dates

Posted by hbsiegel on Oct 31 2016 - 7:12pm

Hi Troop Families,

 It’s that time of year again! Scouting for Food TIME! This is a community service event that ALL of our scouts get involved in.

 Here’s what to do:

 Distribute Bags/Flyers to Neighbors – November 5-6: Over the last two meetings, plastic grocery bags were distributed. Every scout should have taken home 20 bags and flyers.  Just distribute one bag and flyer to 20 neighbors this weekend. You can get more bags and flyers by emailing Suzie and Robert Yalda at meyer2yalda@sbcglobal.net. Be sure to write your name on the flyer where indicated.

 Pick-up Bags/Flyer from Neighbors – November 12: Just go back to the same neighbors houses and see if they left the bag outside of their door. No need to knock. The flyer says it all! BE SURE you pick it up on this date.

 Grocery Store Food Collection – November 12: Scouts can sign up to collect food outside of Ralphs Agoura and Albertsons Calabasas. The shifts are 9 - 11:30 am, 11:30 – 2 pm, and 2 - 4:30 pm. Note that the Ralphs shift from 2-4:30 is already full. At 4pm, that shift counts the food collected, loads the food in the car, and drops it off at DIY Center. Please email me at kathypatton@earthlink.net to sign up. At least one parent is needed at each shift.

 Santa Comes to Westlake, Agoura and Beyond – December 10: Sorting food into bags and loading them into the backs of cars that deliver the food to needy families. Usually 8-10:30 am or so, but we’ll give you the times later.                                                                                                                                                                                      

Also note that a NEW community service event is occurring on December 10th. We have been asked to sponsor the Cookie Decorating Booth at “Santa Comes to the Adobe” This is a new holiday themed event at the Reyes Adobe. We need volunteers from 1-4 pm. Please look for sign-ups at the next meeting.

 Thanks!
