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.
Wente Scout Reservation, owned and operated by the San Francisco Bay Area Council, offered scouts a chance to backpack, sail, mountain bike, fish, ride horses, and go rock climbing all in one week. Rifle, shotgun, and archery shooting were also popular activities. Hi-Sierra is a BSA camp that offered scouts the rustic setting of an old lumber camp, lots of good food, great scenery, great staff, and an excellent Scouting program. Scouts had a lot of fun and each advanced at his own pace.
Over the summer, troop meetings are moved from Lincoln Middle School to Alameda's Crab Cove. The healthy outdoor environment and more casual social interactions for both the boys and their families is a great way to mix up the meetings for the summer school break.

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.
