Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 642. Our troop is part of the Reyes Adobe District in the Western Los Angeles Area Council (WLACC) of the Scouts BSA. We serve the communities and surrounding areas of Calabasas and Woodland Hills. We welcome new families to learn more about our Troop. Scouting is a year-round program for boys and girls ages 11 - 17. We have a sister troop for girls, Troop 642G.  This web site gives our Scouts, their families, and visitors to our site an idea of what Scouting is all about and keeps them informed about troop activities.

Joshua Tree - Oct. 7-9, 2022

Posted on Sep 11 2022 - 10:36pm

Great opportunity for Scouts to try out a short, but sweet, backpacking trip. 
Not too much gear for this trip required, just for one night, and we will keep the backpacking trek short for beginners (~3 miles).  Perfect for first-time backpackers! 
Date: Friday, October 7 - Sunday, October 9
  • Meet at the Legion at Friday at 5:00pm, leave by 5:30pm.
  • Dinner on the road - Bring money for a fast-food stop, or bring your own dinner.
  • Arrive at Joshua Tree, Cottonwood Campground around 8:30pm.
  • Set up camp and relax - stargazing in the dark night sky!
  • In the morning after breakfast, choose one of these options:
  • Sunday morning the backpackers return to the campsite and we will eat breakfast, break down the campsite, and then head home.
  • Lunch on the road - Bring money for a fast-food lunch stop.
  • Be back at the Legion by approximately 2:00pm.
