Welcome !

Prepared. For Life.

Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about Troop 47. We have a great bunch of Scouts. We know if you choose to join our Troop, the friendships, adventures and learning possibilities will be endless. All is of this is possible due to the dedication of our strong leaders and parent-led committee. We especially want to thank the Foster City/Mariner's Island Rotary Club for being our Charter Sponsor.

There are several links within our site that will guide you to additional information about our Troop and help you to determine if this is the Troop for you. The 'About Us' link will assist you in learning more about Troop 47 and our history. The 'Upcoming Events' will show you what we have planned for the year. Also, don't forget to visit the 'Meet the Troop' link to meet our patrols and adult leaders. Some of our links such as our photo albums, calendar, roster and documents won't work without a login. But when you decide to join Troop 47, all of these links will be tools for your Scouts future!


Despite these challenging times with the COVID-19 pandemic, Troop 47 is still very much active and open for new and current Scouts.


We are different from other organizations, camps and schools. While complying with all COVID-19 health and safety guidelines, we are still able to provide opportunities for youths to continue to learn and grow. We have moved forward with regular remote meetings to maintain social interactions to help each other in positive ways and to have fun together. We continue to plan outdoor activities following all social distancing and safety guidelines to enjoy nature and to maintain the open-air environment that has always been one of the key aims in Scouting. Youths still continue to learn valuable life and leadership skills. Learning how to solve problems has been become especially important during these trying times.
 
Most importantly we continue to HAVE FUN which is part of what growing up is all about. Our program is “Scout run”, and we are very proud of the job these young men do. We have a strong PLC Program (Patrol Leader Council), and we conduct our leadership training in-house.

Please contact us to arrange for a Troop visit. We look forward to meeting you. For now we leave you with our Troop slogan: “Good Scouting, good fun.

Troop BBQ Saturday, Nov.28 has been changed due to new COVID restrictions.

Posted by richukim on Nov 25 2020 - 8:35am

Due to the public safety concern, Coyote Point Park has new rules regarding the holiday group gathering.  The new rule only allows no more than 10 people for each event.

Because of this new rule, we have to change our plan accordingly.  Instead of doing a BBQ, we are going to have a nature hike in Edgewood Park. https://parks.smcgov.org/edgewood-park-natural-preserve

For those of you who already signed up for the BBQ, please join us from 1pm to 4pm on Nov. 28.  During the nature hike, you can finish the following rank requirements. 

Troop47 Bowling event - Dec. 19

Posted by richukim on Nov 12 2020 - 2:20pm
Don't miss this fun event!  We will find out who is the best bowler in Troop47.  There will be secret awards for the top 3 personal scores.   Because of the pandemic, we will follow the health official guidelines.  Besides wearing masks, social distancing, and hand sanitizing, the number of attendees will be limited.  Since we don't know how many people are allowed to bowl at the same time, it will be first come first serve.  So, sign up as early as you can.

Yours in Scouting,

Mt. Diablo Campout - Jan. 16-18

Posted by richukim on Nov 12 2020 - 2:19pm

Mt. Diablo is one of the most popular camping destinations in the bay area.  You won't be disappointed.  Park Info: https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=517

Many visitors to Mount Diablo head straight for the Summit to enjoy the famous view. As mountains go, Mount Diablo isn't particularly tall - only 3,849 feet.  However, it is surrounded by low, rolling hills and broad, flat valleys, so the view from the Summit is remarkable.  When conditions are best, you can see almost 200 miles.  Summer days are sometimes hazy, and the best viewing is often on the day after a winter storm. Then, you can look to the west, beyond the Golden Gate Bridge, to the Farallon Islands; southeast to the James Lick Observatory on Mount Hamilton at 4,213 feet elevation; south to Mount Loma Prieta in the Santa Cruz Mountains at 3,791 feet elevation, north to Mount Saint Helena in the Coast Range at 4,344 feet elevation, and still farther north to Lassen Peak in the Cascades at 10,466 feet. North and east of Mount Diablo the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers meet to form the twisting waterways of the Delta. To the east beyond California's great central valley, the crest of the Sierra Nevada seems to float in space.  All in all, you can see over 8,539 square miles and parts of 40 of California's 58 counties from the Summit of Mount Diablo.

We will not have Scouting for Food this year. Instead, November will be a month of service.

Hello Everyone,

This year the food bank isn't accepting food donation with Covid still a major concern. Instead each troop has been asked to use Nov as a month of service.  Here are a few ideas that I am copying from the link provided below. "Some possible ideas include: mask drives, clean-up projects, toy drives, cards for the elderly, cards for service members, food drive for a local pantry, etc. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!" 

Thanks to all the scouts who contributed in achieving our popcorn sale goal.

Troop COVID-19 update on tent policy.

Posted by richukim on Oct 22 2020 - 10:38am
Because the Covid-19 pandemic is not over yet, we will not share tents for the rest of the year.  Every scout goes to campout will be given a troop tent if you need one.  Then you will keep the tent for the rest of the year.
