About our troop
Troop 360 – The “Encino Park” Boy Scout Troop
Troop 360 was founded in the Spring of 2002 from the merging of two 5th-grade Webelos dens from Packs 75 and 515, starting with about a dozen boys and four adults. We have since added Scouts from a number of different Packs and have grown to over 75 boys and several dozen adults.
We gather on Tuesday nights starting at 6:45 p.m. with the meeting starting at 7:00 p.m. at the Encino Park Community Center.
The Troop is chartered by The American Legion Post 10.

We have six patrols in Troop 360:
- Badger Patrol
- Flaming Doughboy Patrol
- Phoenix Patrol
- Fox Patrol
- Moose Patrol
The scouts of Troop 360 are sorted into one of the five patrols above. Each patrol has representation from every age, rank in scouting, and personality. They also have their own name, flag, yell, and personality. A patrol becomes a scout’s family and is assisted by older scouts known as Troop Guides. There is also a Senior Troop Guide who steps in where needed and mentors the other Troop Guides.
Each of these five patrols elects a Patrol Leader from within their patrol to organize activities and represent the patrol at PLC meetings.
We have a Senior Patrol Leader and two Assistant Senior Patrol Leaders who oversee this whole arrangement, as well as Quartermasters (in charge of Gear), Scribes (who takes & distributes notes), Librarian, Historian, Webmaster, etc.
All of the above LEADERS are youth – Boy Scouts. Each position has at least one adult designated as a “mentor” – the scout’s first point of contact for guidance, encouragement, resources, and occasionally a bit of nudging. Our job is to help the scouts to carry out their program.
