Founded in 1913, Troop 4 is one of the oldest Scout troops in the western U.S. and one of the largest in the Greater Los Angeles Area Council. Because of our history and large volunteer staff, we offer a variety of exciting events, projects, and adventures for the complete Scouting experience. Troop 4 Scouts have fun and that’s the key to our success in building character, leadership, and a commitment to community service.
