Welcome !

Welcome to BSA Troop 685 from San Diego, California. Troop 685 is a scout-led troop where the boys decide upon, lead and participate in their trips, activities, and service projects. Adult leaders guide scouts on this journey and on their path to Eagle. Troop 685 meets at 7 PM every Tuesday evening, usually at Monterey Ridge Elementary School. Exceptions will be noted on the Troop Calendar on this website. Many thanks to our chartering organization, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Major Abraham J. Baum Post 7766.

Those interested in having Troop 685 scouts participate in a service event are asked to submit the attached form to service@troop685.org.
