Welcome !

Prepared. For Life.

Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about Troop 47 and 4047. We have a great bunch of Scouts. We know if you choose to join our Troop, the friendships, adventures and learning possibilities will be endless. All is of this is possible due to the dedication of our strong leaders and parent-led committee. We especially want to thank the Foster City/Mariner's Island Rotary Club for being our Charter Sponsor.

There are several links within our site that will guide you to additional information about our Troop and help you to determine if this is the Troop for you. The 'About Us' link will assist you in learning more about Troop 47/4047 and our history. The 'Upcoming Events' will show you what we have planned for the year. Also, don't forget to visit the 'Meet the Troop' link to meet our patrols and adult leaders. Some of our links such as our photo albums, calendar, roster and documents won't work without a login. But when you decide to join Troop 47/4047, all of these links will be tools for your Scouts future!

Despite these challenging times with the COVID-19 pandemic, Troop 47/4047 is still very much active and open for new and current Scouts.

We are different from other organizations, camps and schools. While complying with all COVID-19 health and safety guidelines, we are still able to provide opportunities for youths to continue to learn and grow. We have moved forward with regular remote meetings to maintain social interactions to help each other in positive ways and to have fun together. We continue to plan outdoor activities following all social distancing and safety guidelines to enjoy nature and to maintain the open-air environment that has always been one of the key aims in Scouting. Youths still continue to learn valuable life and leadership skills. Learning how to solve problems has been become especially important during these trying times.
Most importantly we continue to HAVE FUN which is part of what growing up is all about. Our program is “Scout run”, and we are very proud of the job these young men do. We have a strong PLC Program (Patrol Leader Council), and we conduct our leadership training in-house.

Please contact us to arrange for a Troop visit. We look forward to meeting you. For now we leave you with our Troop slogan: “Good Scouting, good fun.

Campfire permit

Posted by DannyGan on Feb 27 2022 - 11:40am
Dear T47 and T4047,
One of the most favorite scouting events is the campfire. However, we must be familiar with fire safety in order to enjoy this event. This website provides detailed training on how to safely handle a campfire. At the end of the training, you can obtain a campfire permit. I would like to see everyone in our troops goes through this training before the next campout which will be the March 18 weekend.
