Welcome to TROOP 658 Online !


Scouts should experience all these and more – and that’s why we’re here! Troop 658 is a strong, vibrant, scout-run troop, which provides numerous activities that only a diverse, well-developed organization can offer.

Each year, our scout youth leadership plans an exciting program with a variety of challenging opportunities. It's not unusual that we're participating in swim meets, backpacking throughout California, scaling the towering rocks of Joshua Tree, kayaking down the Kern or Colorado Rivers, conquering the Grand Canyon, or experiencing all that summer camp has to offer in the High Sierras, Sequoias and beyond!

Want a closer look?
There’s a lot of great information on this site to help you enjoy your Scouting experience, as well as explain our program a little more thoroughly. A couple great places to start are our Join Us and About Us tabs above. We hope you enjoy your time here, but if you’d like to visit us in person, our regular Troop meetings take place:
  • Tuesday nights from 7:00-8:30pm
  • St. John Fisher Church in Rancho Palos Verdes (in the Auditorium under the Gym).
Want to see what our program can do for your son?
Why not hear it straight from Eagle Scout Patrick Lowe. Patrick received the BSA’s top award for an Eagle Scout in 2013, along with a $50,000 college scholarship.


Thanks for visiting, and should you have any questions regarding Troop 658, or Scouting in general, please don’t hesitate to contact me at any time.

Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua Tree 2017-11.pdfJoshua Tree Campout & Rock Climb (SMC) - This is our first Joshua Tree Rock Climb of the scouting year. It’s also a great opportunity for bouldering, learning/teaching scout skills and eating some good food! Please let us know if you and your parents will be attending and climbing and if you’ll be working on your Red or Gold Perlon Awards. This is important as we'll need to buy harness webbing for everyone considering climbing. This is another perfect trip for getting cooking requirements completed for 2nd and 1st Class as well as the Cooking MB. Start getting those menus in NOW!  This is a PLC required event. Parents, please note that if you'd like to participate in the Parent Patrol Food Fest on that trip, please see our Grubmaster Augie Hemeneguildo at an upcoming Troop Meeting (trust us, you'll regret it if you don't ...yum!).
