Troop 2 is the oldest Boy Scout Troop in our council, with a long history of excellence and service for more than 100 years. More than 66 members of our Troop have earned their Eagle Rank, with two being earned this past year and several more are working toward it. In addition to earning the Journey to Excellence Gold award for 2017, our Troop also earned both Presidential Awards at the 2018 Camporee for having the top two patrols in the Alameda Council. Older scouts have their adventurous needs met by becoming members of Venture Crew 2, our program for older scout, ages 14 - 20. Member of Venture Crew 2 also serve as instructors for the troop along with our Troop 2 Patrol Leaders. 

We encourage you to attend a troop meeting: Our Troop meets at 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm, Monday evenings, in the Fellowship Hall at First Presbyterian Church of Alameda, our charter organization. That's 2001 Santa Clara Ave, right next to Haight School. Just go through the Church's parking lot and through the iron gate to the gym (Fellowship Hall).

Meeting activities planned by the Scouts themselves include learning and practicing scouting skills, planning trips, and special activities, working on merit badges or other projects of interest to the Scouts, games, and fun.

Members of Troop 2 helped to establish Camp Stevens, Alameda Council's first Summer Camp and later Camp Cedarbrook. Several members of the Troop belong to the Order of the Arrow, Scouting's National Honor Society, a service organization dedicated to maintaining and improving the camp and its traditions. A number of our older troop members serve on staff at camps run by our council. This allows these scouts a chance to show leadership and meet prospective Scouts during the summer.

The Troop is divided into a number of Patrols of 4 to 8 boys. Sometimes a patrol will hold its own meetings and plan additional outings. If enough Webelos Scouts join the Troop at one time, they will form a New Scout Patrol, with an experienced older Scout as Troop Guide, to work on basic Scouting skills and advancement. Otherwise, the Patrol Leaders work with the new scouts to teach them the skills they will need.
