Official site of Scouts, BSA Troops 15 and 1015 of Fairfax, San Anselmo, and Central Marin
Senior Patrol Leaders Paige Bussi and George Shryock
Assistant Senior Patrol Leaders Skye Manley and Ryder Lariviere
Scoutmasters Todd Statz and Lisa Linnenkhol
Troops 15 & 1015 focus on high adventure outdoor activities. If you like camping, hiking, swimming, backpacking, mountain biking, kayaking, spelunking, rock climbing, rappelling, or just spending time outdoors, you’ll enjoy spending time with Troops 15 and 1015!
Integral to our high-adventure fun is the advancement method. Our Troops have a designated “Trail to First Class” Assistant Scoutmasters and a few senior Scout Troop Guides to help new Scouts learn Scout skills and advance in rank.
Most importantly, the Troops are youth-led and operate via the patrol method with adult leaders there to support the Scouts.
We meet at the American Legion Log Cabin at 120 Veterans Pl, San Anselmo, CA 94960.
Meetings are typically held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm but please check our Troop Calendar for the latest information as we do sometimes change the dates, times, or venues of the meetings. Troop 1015 also holds an additional meeting on the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.

Does Scouting Work? – A 2015 study by Tufts University shows the benefits of Scouting.
We all know Scouting’s goal is to prepare young people for life, but does it work? Scouting was put to the test over the course of three years, when a research team from Tufts University worked with the Boy Scouts of America’s Cradle of Liberty Council to measure the character attributes of both Scouts and non-Scouts — all with a goal of better understanding the character development of youth as it was happening. The project, which was funded by the John Templeton Foundation and led by Dr. Richard M. Lerner, surveyed nearly 1,800 Cub Scouts and nearly 400 non-Scouts under age 12 using both interviews and survey data. Click here for the BSA-Tufts-Infographic summary.
