About Us

Troop 737 was founded in 1993. We are chartered by Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church in beautiful San Clemente, California. 77 of our scouts have reached the rank of Eagle since 1997. Presently, 90 scouts are registered in our Troop. We are a member of the El Camino Real District and Orange County Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

  • The third week of every month is reserved for Patrol Meetings.
  • For new/visiting scouts and parents, please e-mail our Scoutmaster and SPL to confirm and obtain Troop meeting details. 
  • We welcome all scouts and families to attend any of our meetings and catch the wave of scouting!

Program Overview

  • Our troop operates using the Patrol structure. Scouts are organized in groups of 6-10 boys who work together as a team. Each patrol elects its own leader.
  • The scouts run the Troop with the assistance and advice of the Troop Leaders. The terms last for 6 months beginning in January and July. The scouts vote for their Senior Patrol Leader a month before the term begins. The troop leadership makes up the Patrol Leaders' Council Meeting (PLC.) The PLC meets monthly to plan Troop Meetings, Outings, and Special Events.
  • Our Troop offers a strong outdoor oriented program. Our activities include: backpacking, camping, rock climbing, flying sailplanes, canoeing, snorkeling, bicycling, winter sports, and visits to historical locations. The troop attends weeklong camps during the summer. Some past summer and high adventure camps have included: Emerald Bay, Lost Valley, Philmont, Northern Tier, and the Florida Sea Base. 8 of our scouts attended the 2013 National Jamboree in West Virginia. A few plan on attending future National and International Jamborees.
  • We emphasize the values taught in the Boy Scouting program such as living the Scout Oath & Law everyday and becoming confident leaders in their adulthood.
