Founded in 1913, Troop 4 is one of the oldest Boy Scout troops in the western U.S. and, with nearly a hundred Scouts, one of the largest in the San Gabriel Valley Council.
Because of our history and large, volunteer staff, we offer a variety of exciting events, projects, and adventures for the complete Scouting experience.
The boys at Troop 4 have fun and that’s the key to our success in building character, leadership, and a commitment to community service. Learn more by contacting us at Troop4Mail. Also make sure to check out our “This Is Troop 4” video! Click Here>>

Local native plant expert, Mrs. Taylorson, took a group of new Scouts deep into Eaton Canyon at the base of the mighty San Gabriels to identify at least ten native plants.
The intrepid Scouts came back with knowledge over over 25 plants! They learned which plants are edible as well as those that are poisonous. Along the dusty trail, some of the Scouts discovered various animal evidence, including a dead striped racer snake, coyote scat and a few native insect sightings.
