About Us

Established in 1995,Troop 450 is sponsored by the Rotary Club of the Delta in Antioch, CA and serves Boy Scouts from 6th Grade until 12th Grade. They meet on the first three Tuesdays of the month at the cafeteria of Black Diamond Middle School in Antioch.   Black Diamond is located at 4730 Sterling Hills Drive about 2 blocks west of Hillcrest. The cafeteria is to the left of the school, around the corner at the bottom of the hill.  We generally meet from 7 to 8 PM.

There are several things that make Troop 450 unique.  The Troop normally has from 15 to 30 scout members and we utilize the best in camping equipment and canoeing (8 canoes) and a full year of great activities.  Troop 450 has very active adult leadership and committee sponsorship which actively supports every Scout's well-being and efforts toward rank advancement. We are in full support of a "Boy led Troop" with more than adequate adult supervision and guidance. We are also the only Boy Scout troop in the area recognized by Scouts for Equality that follow the Scout Oath and Law by adopting the aspects of the Inclusive Unit.  By adopting these aspects, we also believe “a scout is equal”.  We work hard to prepare our youth leaders to serve our communities without regard to race, ethnicity, religious beliefs, ability, or sexual orientation.

Like many troops, our big annual event is going to Summer Camp.  We use Camp Wente, located near Willits, in Northern California.  Each year we have a tradition of leadership and winning the camp wide competition called the Great Wente Wentathalon, a series of unique scout skill events from rifle shooting, running, archery, aquatic and knot tying skills based on a competitive relay. Our scouts actively participate in many local flag ceremonies like Memorial Day, collect and distribute food for the needy in November in support of Scouting for Food, and serve at various charitable events throughout the year. Numerous Eagle Scout projects take place each year which serve to beautify and support our city's residents, schools, parks, and hospitals providing physical and environmental improvement for the community. Our troop has produced 53 Eagle Scouts since its first one in May of 1998.

 Troop 450's Scouts take pride in the Oath and Law of the Boy Scouts of America by living each one faithfully and always doing a "Good Turn" daily.
