Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 259!


Based in the Greenhaven Pocket area of Sacramento, and chartered by the Elks Lodge #6, Troop 259 offers a year-round program teaching lifelong skills of leadership, good citizenship, and service to others. We're part of the Three Rivers District, in the Golden Empire Council. Over 180 of our scouts have earned the Eagle Scout rank, the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouts of America program. We invite you to join us for an experience of a lifetime. Click the images below for more information, or email us for details.


If you're not quite old enough to join Troop 259, we invite you to join Cub Scout Pack 259, also based in the Greenhaven Pocket area. Cub Scouting is for boys in the First through Fifth Grades, or 7 to 10 years of age. Boys who are older than 10, or who have completed the Fifth Grade are eligible to join Troop 259's Boy Scouts.
