BSA Troop # 37

About Us

In 1959, Troop 37 was first chartered by the Cathedral Oaks Elementary School (Selmar Wake Center).  Over the years we have been chartered by many organizations including the Optimist Breakfast Club of Santa Barbara, the Goleta Daytime Lions Club, St. Andrews Presbyterian Church, the Downtown Optimist Club, the Salvation Army and our current charter the Elks Lodge #613. 

Over the 53 years of Troop 37's existence, we have proudly admitted 50 scouts to the rank of Eagle while being served by 15 Scoutmasters.
