Troop 15 Marin

Official site of Boy Scout Troop 15 of Fairfax, San Anselmo, and West Marin

Senior Patrol Leader Jake Stadtner

Assistant Senior Patrol Leader Paul Kelemen

Scoutmaster Kevin Krick

Troop 15 focuses on 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 that time with Troop 15!

Integral to our high-adventure fun is the advancement method.  Troop 15 has a designated “Trail to First Class” Assistant Scoutmaster and two senior Scout Troop Guides to help new Scouts learn Scout skills and advance in rank.

Most importantly, the Troop is boy-led and operates 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 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.

To register and pay for Troop events and activities, Troop 15 uses SignUpGenius which is linked with PayPal.  Please click on our SignUpGenius page to see the current events.

 

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.
