About Troop286

   We are from San Jose, California. Our troop offers a diverse and active Scouting program that focuses on hiking, cycling, and rock climbing. In addition to monthly overnight camping trips and a week at a BSA summer camp, we offer challenging ‘high adventure’ trips for older Scouts including multi-day backpackers, snow camping, and an annual week-long ’50-Miler’ to destinations such as the Emigrant Wilderness and the Philmont BSA High Adventure Base in New Mexico.

   We meet in the Holy Family Community center, every Monday from 7:00 – 8:30pm.
