Welcome to Troop 72

San Bruno’s Troop 72 received its first charter from the Boy Scout of America in May 1917. We are one of the longest running Scout units in the Bay Area and have been in continuous service since 1922. The South San Francisco Elks Lodge has been our chartering organization since the 1960’s. We regularly provide service work in support of their efforts in the community.

We meet Thursday evenings, year-round at 7:00 P.M. Meetings last 90 minutes. During the school year we meet at John Muir School and during the summer months we meet at San Bruno City Park.

High Adventure

Troop 72 places an emphasis on high adventure. We plan at least one weekend outdoor activity a month. Most months, those events include opportunities to camp outdoors. During the summer, we feature our weeklong high adventure trip. Recent treks included backpacking in the Sierras and a bike trek in the Humboldt Redwoods. This trip is always popular and is more rewarding than can be imagined. Our Troop also spends one week each year at summer camp. We have attended Wente for the past several years.

Follow the "About Us" link to the left to learn more about us.  If you are interested in joining the Troop, attending a Troop meeting or have questions about Scouting or our group, you can reach us throught the "Contact Us" link on the left side of this page.
