Scouts BSA Troop 566 has served the youth of our community for over 54 years, with a strong parent-volunteer base and an emphasis on community service. We focus on teaching outdoor skills, values, citizenship, and leadership.
Our chartering organization is Menlo Church Saratoga. We are geographically centered on the Blue Hills neighborhood in Saratoga, CA, and includes boys and girls from Saratoga, Cupertino, Los Gatos, Campbell, San Jose and Santa Clara. We are multi-cultural and multi-faith, and we consider this diversity a benefit to our program.
Where some Troops have more “contemporary” programs, Troop 566 features a traditional Scouting experience for both Boys and Girls (Troop 2566), with strong patrols, monthly camping, a high-adventure (Venturing Crew 566) option, leadership and skills instruction, respect for others, and good, clean fun.
