Boy Scout Troop 599 was founded in 1971. The meeting place and sponsoring organizations have changed over the years, but the vitality of the Troop has never waned. BSA Troop 599 is a member of the South Florida Council.
Scouting is about adventure
Troop 599 is very active in their annual summer camps. Past summer camps that we have attended include hiking at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico, scuba diving at Florida Seabase in the Florida Keys, canoeing at Northern Tier in Canada, and whitewater rafting at Camp Daniel Boone in North Carolina. Troop 599 is also a very active participant in the annual Barefoot Mailman hike from Pompano Beach to Miami's South Beach and has the distinction of being the unit with the largest number of participants to have completed the hike in 2009.
Scouting is about community service
Troop 599 assists in various community service projects including semi-annual cleanup of the ValuJet Flight 592 memorial, Relay for Life (cancer fundraising), and Eagle Scout projects.
Scouting is about camping and experiencing the outdoors
BSA Troop 599 has monthly campouts during the school year.
