Welcome to Troop 479!

On my honor, I will do my best 
To do my duty to God and my country 
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To Keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

Our Troop: 
Troop 479 is part of the Rancho Mesa District in the San Diego-Imperial Council. We are comprised of scouts living in the Poway, Ramona, Scripps Ranch, Rancho Bernardo areas, but all boys are welcome. Our troop is full of scouts and leaders who love to have fun while embodying the scout law, oath and motto.
