Boy Scouts of America – Troop 209

We are a very active Boy Scout group in Burbank California, affiliated with Iron Eyes Cody District of the Verdugo Hills Council, Troop 209 membership consists of approximately 50 active scouts who reside in the surrounding communities of Burbank, Glendale, Sun Valley, Toluca Lake and North Hollywood.

Our Troop meetings proudly chartered by First United Methodist Church, 700 N. Glenoaks Blvd. Burbank, CA. 91504, usually meet every Tuesday from 6:45pm to 8:00pm

Throughout the year, our scouts learn many skills and values that are crucial to the development of quality young men. Additionally, they will learn the benefits of teamwork and the importance of community service.Troop 209

During the year, the scouts in our Troop participate in various scouting activities. Our weekend activities consisted of; several overnight camping trips – including

snow camp, deep seas fishing, snowboarding, sailing, horseback riding, kayaking, and day hikes. In addition, many of our scouts attend a one-week summer camp at Circle-x in Lake Arrowhead, Emerald bay in Catalina Island, Whitset camp and many more camps. Our older scouts enjoy a week at Florida Seabase Adventure Camp in Florida, Northern Tier in Ely Minnesota, and few more camps.

Most of our scouts help pay their own way for many of these adventures by participating in our fundraising activities. The gift-wrapping program with the sale of mistletoe, conducted each year in the weeks leading up to Christmas is our troop’s chief fundraising event, other fundraising activities include popcorn sale and pancake breakfast.
