Welcome to Troop 657, Cypress CA

Troop 657 was established in 2005 and continues to actively serve the youth of the Orange Frontier District. We are about 60 boys strong and have an active program of meetings, outings, fundraisers, service projects, and summer camp. We’re chartered and sponsored by Holy Cross Lutheran Church, 4321 Cerritos Ave., Cypress CA.

Our Troop meets weekly on Mondays from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of the church. Please contact us if you’d like more information or are just interested in Boy Scouts. scoutmaster@Troop657.org

Summer Camp Departure – July 17

For all boys and adults who are attending summer camp, the Troop is meeting at the parking lot across from Holy Cross at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday, July 17. Carpool assignments were sent out via the Troop email. Please make sure you are completely packed and ready to go, so we can depart on time. If your medical forms have not been received prior to departure, you will not be able to attend. This goes for adults as well. Camp Whitsett is a fantastic camp. Let’s make this a great trip!

Troop Cycling Challenge – June 27 to July 24

Vive le Tour de France! Vive le Troop 657 Cycling Challenge!

It’s that time of year again. Time to strap on your helmet, get on your bike, and ride. Justin R. is organizing this year’s event. Essentially, it’s a friendly challenge to see which boys and which patrols can get in the most miles. All miles count. Ride around your neighborhood, up to the park, or all the way to the beach and back. Just be sure to track your miles and send them in to Justin R. to make sure they count. You’ll find more information and a sample mileage log in the Troop email. Questions? Contact Justin R. at jrandig@verizon.net.

Service Opportunity – June 26 and July 16

Holy Cross, our host church, is holding a Vacation Bible School this summer. Help is needed to distribute door hangers advertising the event to the community. Boy Scouts will meet at the church and then distribute the hangers in the neighborhood, meeting back at the church by noon. Lunch will be provided. Two adult volunteers are also needed for each shift. Feel free to sign up for either or both shifts via the link in the Troop email.
