Our Troop meets on the first and third Tuesday from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM. The meeting schedule is subject to change as a result of Holidays and other Event Conflicts (primarily during the Summer).
During the School year (FUHSD and CUSD schedules, other school districts may vary), we currently meet at Cupertino High School in Room 107. Committee Meetings (parents) are held concurrent with the second Troop Meeting of each Month, and meets in Room 105 at Cupertino High.
When school lets out for the summer, we meet next to the grass field at Sedgwick Elementary School. Committee Meetings are held in the picnic benches next to the classrooms at Sedgwick Elementary during the Summer.
During our meetings, we work on scouting skills, plan for our future activities, advance if necessary, and bond together by playing in games that revolve around teamwork.
