About Us

Troop 636 is located in Rancho Santa Margarita, California. Our troop is active in many high adventure activities as well as family based outings. We participate in rock climbing, High Sierra hiking, local hiking and camping. We have usually have two one week long summer camps. The troop has also added a Surf Camp every year.

Troop 636 is ideal for new Scouts working on their First Class Emphasis. The troop has local campouts with activities targeted for Scouts working on First Class Emphasis. Troop 636 is focused on a boy run troop philosophy. Activities are planned and run by the "Boy Leadership". The adult leaders assist the boys and in the running of the troop when needed. The troop serves the boys as a road to leadership and responsibility.

We are very proud of our achievements in the 20 years of our existence. We have over 100 Eagle Scouts and have many past Eagle Scouts serving as adult leaders. Welcome to all the bridging Webelos Scouts. We are expecting a new batch of Webelos and look forward to helping them make the transition from Cubs to Scouts go smoothly. Older Scouts lend a hand, new Scouts learn from them.

Some of our yearly highlights are Rock Climbing in Joshua Tree, White Water Rafting, and a High Sierra 50 miler backpack. We participate in trail-building with the forestry service and have our own Trail Boss. We have an annual "Rocket Launch" weekend that is coordinated with Space Exploration merit badge.
