About Us

Boy Scout Troop 649 is chartered by the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 10049, and is located in Simi Valley, California.

Troop 649 was founded in 1997 in Simi Valley, California. It is chartered and supported by the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), Post # 10049. Troop 649 is an all-round adventure troop, with past and current activities that include backpacking, deep-sea fishing, zip-lining, rock climbing, rocket launching, kayaking, whale watching, and Boy Scout summer camp.

Troop 649 has a “Scout-led” program, where Scouts select their activities, plan, and conduct their own meetings. We strongly encourage our Scouts to reach the rank of First Class in 13 to 18 months. After that point, almost all our Scouts continue on to Eagle Scout, the highest rank attainable in Scouting. Troop 649 has a strong tradition of graduating Scouts who retain the knowledge and outdoor skills learned as they rank up.
