For almost 100 years, Boy Scout Troop 11 has served the youth in the community of Alameda California.
Scouts learn camping, pioneering and problem solving skills in adventurous outdoor activities, including hiking, fishing, camping, canoeing and climbing. They also develop leadership skills through interaction with peers and adult leaders.
Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Alameda, Troop 11 Scouts are active in their schools and in their community. Our members regularly participate in community service projects.
Troop 11 completed its annual Alameda Christmas Tree pickup! Each year scouts span out over the island and collect Christmas trees for recycling. Supplementing the efforts of Alameda County Industries, trees recycled through Troop 11 are returned to Alameda as mulch for the Alameda Point Collaborative.
The troop also had fun at our annual Snow Trip in South Lake Tahoe. A second winter trip saw the troop competing in the Pacific Skyline Council's Klondike Derby!
Troop 11 participated two week long summer camps: Camp Wente and Camp Hi-Sierra, where the boys worked on merit badges and explored the great outdoors.
Camp Winton, owned and operated by the Golden Empire Council, offered scouts a chance to sail, canoe, and paddle board. Hi-Sierra is a BSA camp that offered scouts the rustic setting of an old lumber camp. Scouts had a lot of fun and each advanced at his own pace.
