Welcome to Troop 776!

Troop 776 is located in Encinitas and meets at St. John the Evangelist Church on Encinitas Blvd. Our Scouts reside in the surrounding communities of Encinitas, Leucadia, Cardiff, Carlsbad, Olivenhain and San Marcos.

If you are looking for a troop to join, please visit us during any of our  regular troop meeting times or contact us for more information. Click on the Boy Scout Parent Handbook attachment (below) for an overview of our Troop. 

The Troop will have its last Meeting ("in-person!") on Tues June 9 at 7pm.

After June 9, we will not hold any scheduled meetings during the summer. Most scouts will be attending summer camps and/or hikes. We will resume regular meetings starting in late August. When we return, this will be our normal Tuesday night monthly meeting schedule:

1st Tuesday of the month: Regular Troop Meeting(7PM)
2nd Tuesday of the month: Regular Troop Meeting(7PM), Committee Meeting (7PM)
3rd Tuesday of the month: Regular Troop Meeting (7PM), Board of Review (BOR)(7PM)
4th Tuesday of the month: No Regular Troop Meeting but instead there is a Patrol Leader's Council Meeting (7PM) & Scoutmaster Meeting (6PM)

If there is a 5th Tuesday in a month, the troop does not meet that day.

Happy Summer!

Posted on Jun 19 2020 - 1:32pm
The St. John Church Pantry Rep, Mr. Steve Toner, shared this story with the San Diego Union Tribune with the St. John Pastor and Secretary.  The story describes the efforts of our Troop to collect food for the St. John food pantry and highlights our own Scout Charles Welch who went over and above what was expected.  Way to go Scouts and Charles!   Mr. Toner also gave a special thanks to Mrs. Debbie Rull for helping the scouts to organize the food drive and for making this newspaper story happen.    https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/north-county-community-news/story/2020-06-15/boy-scouts-collect-food-for-community-members-in-need
