Welcome To Boy Scouts Troop616 of New Territory RCA, Sugar Land, TX 77479

Welcome to your Unit's Website: http://www.troop616.org 
About Us: 
Troop 616 (SHAC / NorthStar District) is comprised of approximately 50 boys (older than 11 years) and many well-trained, hard-working adult leaders. Our scoutmaster, Mr. Phil Sedita (sm@troop616.org), coordinates year-round meetings and campouts dedicated to teaching our Boy Scouts to live the Scout Oath, Law, and Motto. Activities include great campouts and hikes, attending merit badge fairs, going to summer camp, and much more.  Our High Adventure program allows older Scouts to experience new activities such as Canoeing, Tubing, Waterskiing, Boating, Hiking, Horseback riding, Rock climbing, and other Volunteer activities that teach them newer skills that will assist them on their road to Eagle Scout. To contact Troop616 to Inquire/Join, Please come over to New Territory Club on Tuesdays at 7 PM between September thru May of calendar school year or go to left menu and click Contact us and Email Troop (contact@troop616.org)! If your son is younger than 11 years, he can start initially as a cubscout by clicking cubscout link or contacting a pack from New Territory Magazine.

We are proud and grateful that the NTRCA (New Territory Residential Community Association) and The Club at New Territory allow us to meet at The Club facility.  We meet every Tuesday evening from 7:15 to 8:30 PM in the evening at The Club, located at corner of Homeward Way and New Territory Boulevard.

Merit Badges

Posted by leader on May 16 2014 - 12:15pm
I recently had a parent ask me about merit badges, so I prepared this short reply.  I hope it is helpful to all, but note there is much more material available elsewhere. First - Much information about the merit badges and how they work is in the scout handbook.  Second - There is a very good online resource for merit badges, their requirements, and workbooks to help the scouts progress through them  http://meritbadge.org/wiki/index.php/Merit_Badge_Worksheets

Back to Scouting Deep Sea Adventure

Posted by leader on May 9 2014 - 8:32am

Our summer Back-to-Scouting event is a 1/2 day deep sea fishing trip in Galveston. Tentative date for it is Sunday, August 17th (7:00-3:00). Cost is $60.00 per person (which includes tackle and bait). Parents and siblings are welcome to participate. Right now, I would like to gauge the level of interest for participation.  PARENTS- please e-mail me back ONLY if you, your Scout and any additional family members WOULD be interested, along with a total number of participants (again, this is not a firm commitment---that's when money changes hands!). Thanks, Steve
