Troop 113 FAQs
Troop 113 has been an integral part of Culver City since 1954.
The Troop meets in the historic Culver City Scout House and played a key role in its preservation.
The Troop truly is “Boy – Run.” The Scouts plan the calendar, run the meetings and conduct the campfires.
Scoutmaster Erik Mayer has been a member of Troop 113 since 1980. He earned his Eagle rank in June of 1987 and became Scoutmaster in August of 1993. He is a 2015 recipient of the Silver Beaver. Both he and the Troop share a focus on Emergency Preparedness.
The Troop is supported by several Adult leaders who either work directly with the Scouts or work behind the scenes as part of the Troop Committee.
The Troop is very active during the school year. There are weekly Troop or Patrol Meetings, Advancement Meetings, Courts of Honor, Campouts, including our annual Snow Camp at Camp Conrad Chinnock – Big Bear and the Crescent Bay District Camporee, fund raising activities, and service projects.
Troop Meetings are held on Tuesdays usually from 7:00pm to 8:30pm, however, some meetings start earlier depending on the activity.
The Troop generally does not meet during the summer, winter break, or spring break. The Troop participates in a week-long summer camp (e.g. Camp Emerald Bay on Catalina Island, Camp Josepho) and plans a Super Trip (e.g. Philmont Scout Ranch) every other summer.
