General information for joining
Boys may start in Boy Scouting if they are 11, or are at least 10 years old and have completed the fifth grade, or have earned the Cub Scout Arrow of Light Award. Boys may continue in the scouting program until their 18th birthday. Upon turning 18, scouts cannot continue activities and advancement as a Boy Scout.
Persons 18 or older register as adult leaders.
Boys experience a vigorous outdoor program and peer group leadership with the counsel of an adult Scoutmaster to achieve the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness.
Camping, fun with friends -- and more. It’s the adventure of a lifetime!
Give your son a valuable gift by encouraging him to join Boy Scouting today. The time you invest in him today will make a difference
in the person he becomes tomorrow!

However, any person (scout, adult, friend, sibling) planning to participate in a Troop 777 trek must have a (2) copies of the parent signed parts A and B of this form; one for the adult trek leader and one to keep with them.
For High Adventure treks and summer camps, the participant must have a physician signed part C. We encourage all to complete all parts of the form annually during the registration season to avoid any issues joining the treks or activities throughout the year.
KEEP THE ORIGINALS. Only bring photocopies on treks.
We encourage adults to register with Troop 777 and become active with the troop. Only with the help of adult volunteers can the troop offer the meaningful scouting experience to our children and the community.
Parents are not required to register with Troop 777 to attend troop meetings or to join their scouts on many treks and activities. However, adults must complete Youth Protection Training (YPT) when working with any scouts other than their own children. Also, only registered adults with proper training can lead Troop 777 treks, or hold a position within the troop.
Four things are required for an Adult to register with Troop 777:
BSA Adult Membership Form. Be sure to provide all of the requested information including Drivers License number, Social Security number, Birth Date and references. This information is necessary for the performance of a background check and the registration will be rejected without it.
2021 Troop Registration Form (only one form per family is required).
Youth Protection Training (YPT). Create an account online at https://my.scouting.org/ and complete the online Youth Protection Training course. This takes about 30 minutes and provides a certificate to print on completion. Please print the certificate.
Registration Fee. For a new adult registration, the fee is $33, or only $1 for a registered Adult transferring from a Cub Scout Pack or another Troop.
Forms can be turned in at most troop meetings, scanned and emailed or sent by mail to the Registrar at: 3210 Avenida de Sueno, Carlsbad, CA 92009.
