Boy Scouts of America Troop 2399
This past year (2013), Troop 2399 received the Rocky Trout Award, which was awarded by the CIEC council for having the most Eagle Scouts within one year. With 7 total Eagles in 2013, Troop 2399 earned this well-deserved award, and hope to strive for more this year, 2014.
Boy Scout Troop 2399 is located in Chino Hills, California, and chartered by St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church.

Are Cub Scouts the same as Boy Scouts?
Cub Scouting is a program of the Boy Scouts of America—so in that sense, Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts are both members of the same organization. However, they are entirely different programs: Cub Scouting is a family-oriented program designed specifically to address the needs of younger boys.
