Troop 149 is located in Redwood City, California, in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area.

We are a registered troop of the Boy Scouts of America

Boys enter the troop in the Spring of 5th grade and finish before their 18th birthday.  Some join us after completing Cub Scouts.  Others join us with no prior scouting experience.
