Troop 775 was established in 1965 under the Charter Organization of the United Methodist Church of Westlake Village, California. Our mission is to prepare young men to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetime through the development of strong character, leadership abilities, and an understanding of social responsibility.

Our Troop is a “boy-led” Troop under the supervision of the Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters and supported by a large number of parents who actively serve in a host of leadership roles. We have a Troop Committee comprised of parents who act as a Board of Governors for the Troop.

Over the years, our Troop has been the recipient of many awards including Quality Unit, but our proudest accomplishment is each of the over 100 young men of our Troop who have attained the rank of Eagle Scout. Nationally, only 4% of Scouts attain this rank.

Troop 775 engages in a wide variety of camping and high adventure activities including Scout camps, backpacking, rock climbing, rocket launching, cycling, white water rafting, and more to address the diversity of interests of the boys and help them gain the necessary knowledge and skills to engage in each of these activities. In the process, the Scouts do a lot of camping and master a host of outdoor skills.

Learning about possible careers, developing hobbies, understanding their role in their community and environment as citizens all come about from attending troop meetings, participating in events like Camporee and earning merit badges. 

Additionally, Scouts participate in numerous community service projects throughout the year including Scouting for Food, serving Conejo Free Meals and assisting at Eagle Projects.  Community service is required for rank advancement.


Troop 775 meets on Monday nights from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm at:

United Methodist Church of Westlake Village
1049 Westlake Blvd.

Westlake Village, CA  91361

Benefits of Scouting

"Scouts can learn valuable life lessons and skills that are often hard to obtain in today's world. In my view, young men learning to do the right thing is easier to do by active engagement in Scouting." - Thomas G. Plante, Ph.D, ABPP
