Sacramento - January 18-20, 2020 (MLK weekend)

How would you like to:

The last time the troop went to Sacramento over MLK weekend was in 2015. We had a total of 30 scouts and 8 adult leaders, and it was a HUGE success!

Sound fun? Join us for our MLK trip this coming year in Sacramento. The signup is now open and we may only be able to accommodate 28 scouts. We will need 6-7 parents to join and drive for this event.


The cost is $180 per person – we will send a Paypal link for payment soon.

Troop 33 membership renewal for 2020 - Past Due (DEC. 20th)

We are now past the deadline to renew your Troop 33 membership. Both Scouts and adults need to fill in the online membership questionnaire. We are also collecting 2020 membership fees for Scouts and BSA Fair Share donations. Please find detailed instructions on the troop website: Renewing Your Troop 33 Membership for 2020

Anyone not renewed will be dropped from the roster and unable to participate in any troop activities in 2020. An additional processing fee of $25 will be levied per scout if you are dropped from the roster and we need to add you back.
