About Us

Our Beginnings

Troop 50 was originally organized in the 1930’s by the members of the Buddhist Church of Sacramento (the “Buddhist Church”). At the outbreak of World War II, the troop was disbanded. The troop was inactive until 1962 when Troop 50 was reorganized and chartered under the leadership of Mr. Akio Imai. The troop continues to be sponsored by the Buddhist Church. Troop membership has varied from less than 40 scouts with four leaders to more than 80 scouts with 30 leaders. The church also has sponsored Cub Scout Pack 50, Explorer Post 50, and Venture Crew 50.  In 2019, Troop 50G, a girl troop. was formed. Pack 50, Troop 50B and Troop 50G remain active.

In 1970, Troop 50 had its first Scout earn the rank of Eagle Scout since its reorganization. Since that time, it has been a tradition for this troop to have a higher than average rate of its Scouts attain the rank of Eagle Scout. This is due to the cooperative nature among the Scout, the youth Scout leaders, the adult Scout leaders and the parent group. Each entity plays an important part in ensuring the Scout has an opportunity to gain as much as possible from Scouting.
