Boys as young as ten and in the 5th grade are also welcome to become Boy Scouts.

Parents are encouraged to come with their sons and learn about what Boys Scouts has to offer.

Scouts learn many skills that can come in handy later in life including first aid, cooking, camping, map and compass.

Scouts learn about the value of being a good member of the community by taking part in activities that improve our local area including tree planting and road clean up.

The North Fork troop likes to go camping, swimming, hiking, and backpacking into the wilderness. Each summer the troop spends a week at Camp Chawanakee Boy Scout camp on the shores of Shaver Lake.

Over the past few years, some of the more interesting places the troop has gone include camping trips to Death Valley, Bodie ghost town, and Morro Bay.
