Update for Summer/Fall 2020
Even though our Scouts are unable to meet face to face because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our sponsored Scout units at IUCC, Cub Scout Pack 697 and Scouts BSA Troop 602, are still holding virtual meetings and doing a lot of fun virtual Scouting activities. This means that you can still sign up your child for Scouting. As an extension of the Open and Affirming values of IUCC, Pack 697 and Troop 602 are both inclusive units and welcome to all youth and families without regard to race, ethnicity, gender/gender identity, and sexual orientation. We accept female youth in both of our units!

We always need adult volunteers for our units. Please be sure to register as an adult leader when you register your child. All adult leaders and parent volunteers will be subject to a background check by BSA National and the Orange County Council and are required to take Youth Protection Training online before they are authorized to be a leader or a volunteer.
If you have any trouble registering your child for Scouting on the Be A Scout web site or want more information about our sponsored Scout units at IUCC, you can send your questions to the following leaders.

Troop 602 is a Scout-led troop that meets in Plumer Hall has one scheduled outdoor activity or camp out every month planned by our Scouts. All of our meetings and scheduled are planned and led by our Scouts.
Just like our sponsor, Irvine United Congregational Church, our scouting program is inclusive. All youth, families and adult volunteers are encouraged to participate equally in our meetings and outings. Since the Boy Scouts of America is a non-sectarian organization, you do not have to be a member of Irvine UCC to participate.
If you are interested in enrolling your child in our Scouts’ BSA troop for males or females or have any questions about our scouting program, please feel free to contact us using the form below.
Yours in Scouting,
Eagle Scout (1986)
