Welcome to Troop 4 Pasadena

Current, as well as past Scouts and leaders join together for a group photo

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.

Magic Mountain – Sorta!

A few Troop 4 scouts and two Troop adults had a blast at Magic Mountain, before being blasted by hot winds and, unfortunately, a fire near the parking lot that caused the park to be evacuated.  Stay tuned for MM part 2!

Monthly parent meetings start Monday April 8 at 7:30pm.

In order to better communicate and build a tighter community, the Troop leadership has decided to start a monthly parents’ meeting on the second Monday night of each month, during the troop meeting. This has been successful in other troops. The first meeting will be this Monday, April 8. We will start at 7:30 pm. We will discuss upcoming events, welcome and orient new parents, and enjoy getting to know each other better. Just as older scouts mentor younger ones, experienced scout parents can guide newer ones.

All current scout parents should do their best to attend each month. Remember, the more you are involved in your boys’ scouting experience, the better it will be. See you Monday!
