A Message from the Scoutmaster

Troop 713 serves the beach cities of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach and El Segundo, California. We are a highly active troop, engaged in many different outings throughout the year. Through our active boys, active parents, and active leaders; we maintain a fun, safe environment that teaches our youth the values and morals they need to become outstanding citizens in our community and nation.

Most importantly, our Troop is about building leaders. Troop 713 is a “BOY LED TROOP”. This is a basic tenet of our troop philosophy. What this means is that the Scouts run the troop. It’s that simple. Under the direction of the Senior Patrol Leader (the highest boy-held position in the troop), the scouts plan the year, they schedule activities, they run the meetings, they train the new scouts, they plan their own meals, and they cook their own food. The adult leaders – or Scouters as we call them – are there to provide support, offer advice if asked, drive, handle the money and record keeping, intervene for safety reasons, and other support and communication roles. But, if you ask a Scouter a question, chances are they will say, “Ask the Senior Patrol Leader.”

If you are interested in joining the troop or just want to see what Scouting is all about, please join us at a troop meeting. We meet from 7:00 to 8:30 pm on Monday evenings at American Martyrs School (1701 Laurel Avenue, Manhattan Beach, CA). Or contact us at Manhattanbeachbsatroop713@gmail.com

This Month in Boys' Life Magazine Official publication of the BSA

Biking across America

The July 2015 issue of Boy's Life magazine features an amazing article about a group of Eagle Scouts that rode their bikes all the way across America. Lots of great photos and a very exciting trip - 3800 miles over 64 days! Other features include a very interesting piece on some of the most intriguing items held at the Smithsonian along with ideas for better tasting creative camp cooking. There is also a fun project that can be built with recycled household items. Only in the Boy Scout edition is an article on how to prepare for a canoe trip and also information on dangerous plants. The Cub Scout edition has fun photos and information on a visit to the Statue of Liberty.
