Here is the summary of our activities:

Icehouse Canyon Trail - Overnight Backpacking Trip

On 11/26, Crew 606 members had fun backpacking and camping at the Cedar Glen Campground at Icehouse Canyon Cucamonga Wilderness. From the campground, they hiked another 2.6 miles to peak Icehouse Saddle at 7600-ft. Great exercise to burn a few pounds gained during Thanksgiving, wasn’t it? Big, big thanks to Kyle for putting this together, Thomas for capturing the moments and Adult Leaders for providing transportation!

Huntington Beach Clean-Up & Bonfire with Troop 606

On 11/19, members had fun bonding around a fire with potential members from Troop 606 families! Before enjoying the s’mores, we all participated in picking up trash around the beach for an hour and a half.

It was also the Crew 606’s first induction ceremony. Five youths were inducted by our president Yasmin that night under the stars. Thank you Enzo for putting these warming activities all together!

Santa Monica Biking Trip

From 10/9-10/10, starting at Redondo Beach and biking 19 miles along Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Marina Del Rey, and Venice Beach, Crew 606 members enjoyed exploring the city and pier as well as spending the night at a cozy hostel in Santa Monica. The following morning, everyone was energetic enough to continue exploring Santa Monica a little more before taking the train to visit Little Tokyo and Chinatown and finally returning to the Tustin Station. Big thanks to Thomas for putting this together, recording the moments, and the Adult Leaders for providing us transportation and safety.




Personal Safety Awareness Training

On 9/24, Crew youth participated in the Personal Safety Awareness Training. Many thanks to our mentor & instructor Mr. Do!



Crew 606 Potluck

On 08/29, Crew 606 had their very first activity at Sweet Shade Park in potluck style. We enjoyed the food and bonding time. Big thanks to our VP of Programs Tyler for putting this fun activity together, and always throwing out great activity ideas to the crew!
