Association with Adults


Scoutmaster Robert Feinstein earned his Eagle Scout at a member of Troop 538 in Anaheim California before going to college at UC Irvine then on to UCSD Medical School in 1987. Following in former Scoutmaster Mark Woodworth's footsteps, Scoutmaster Feinstein was Cubmaster of University City Pack 11 for 3 years before his son Troy joined Troop 271.
Scoutmaster Mark Woodworth was a Cub Scout in the city of Orange, CA and earned his Arrow of Light award.  He then became a founding member of Troop 1776, founded in our country's bicentennial year 1976, where he reached the rank of Star before the troop folded due to lack of recruiting younger scouts.  Fast forward a few years and we find Mark as Cubmaster of Pack 11 in University City where he served for three years.  Mark's son bridged to Troop 271 after earning his Arrow of Light and Mark became a member of the Troop Committee and served as Equipment Coordinator prior to being tapped as Scoutmaster in February 2012. 

Assistant Scoutmasters

"Many hands make light work" and Troop 271 is always looking for energetic, enthusiastic Assistant Scoutmasters (ASMs).  ASMs serve in many capacities including:
  • Patrol Leader Advisor - assigned to a specific patrol to mentor and encourage leadership development of the Patrol Leader and Patrol Members
  • Activity Leader - assist in planning and execution of troop events ranging from short activities such as service projects, troop outings, and campouts to longer activities such as Sierra or Philmont treks
  • Troop Support - help out with equipment transport and repair, be a merit badge counselor, assist with scout skills development, etc.
ASMs must be registered adults with BSA and complete several trainings (mostly online plus Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills (overnight)).
