About Troop 927
The goal of Troop 927 is to provide a quality scouting experience that will allow each scout to develop leadership and life skills as he advances through the Boy Scout ranks. Since 1965, Boy Scout Troop 927 has been serving the Westchester community. Currently, there are over 40 Scouts participating in our scouting program. The Boy Scouts of America have national standards and guidelines that each troop is required to follow. These standards are outlined in the Boy Scout Handbook. However, each troop achieves its goals in different ways, depending on its members and leaders. Therefore, each Boy Scout program is the same but unique because it is a reflection of the leadership and the community it serves.
Serving the Community
The Westchester community is one of the strongest Scouting communities in Southern California and we are fortunate for the support we receive. Giving back to the community if not optional; it is required as a Boy Scout and as a member of the Troop. Through various events and Eagle projects, the Troop has performed services that have benefited our schools, churches, libraries, and parks. In addition to the required service hours, the focus on community service is essential to the personal development of the Scout. There is an inherent trust that is associated with the Boy Scouts and it is the responsibility of each Scout to validate that trust within the community. In doing so, we can preserve and enhance the legacy of the Boy Scouts of America.
From backpacking to laser tag and from rock climbing to cycling and sailing, Troop 927 schedules and participates in a variety of activities covering a number of interests. The goal is to maintain interest in the scouting program and provide opportunities for advancement and learning.
The Troop meets three times a month; the first three Mondays of each month. We meet in Westminister Hall at Covenant Presbyterian Church located at 6323 W. 80th St. on the corner of Sepulveda Blvd. and 80th Street. Meetings begin at 7:00 pm and end at 8:30pm. Scouts are required to attend in uniform. Parent meetings are on the fourth Monday of each month at 7:00 pm in Westminister Hall. All parents are encouraged to attend.
