Welcome to Troop 418!

Boy Scout Troop 418, part of the Boy Scouts of America, is located in Hilliard, Ohio. (A North West suburb of Columbus, Ohio)  We are a youth-led organization focused on teaching young men the skills they will need throughout their lives.   We encourage our youth to become leaders through Troop positions which help them develop life skills within and outside of scouting.

Troop 418 is an active Troop. We plan monthly camping trips and attend a week of summer camp each year.  Our Troop is also active in giving back to the community with our annual involvement with Toys for Tots and other service activities throughout the year. Our Troop attends Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimmaron, New Mexico every other year.  Philmont is the premier national high adventure camp for Scouts.

Troop 418 has been in existence for 23 years.  Since this time we have had the success of 28 Eagle Scouts. We meet at Hilliard Presbyterian Church every Monday night during the school year at 7pm.

Feel free to attend one of our weekly meetings and check us out!

Troop 418–

Time to have fun getting together again for a great gaming experience! Troop 418 is having its Gaming Weekend at Camp Hugh Taylor Birch in Yellow Springs once again, February 28 – March 1. Bring your gaming rig, your games, TVs, and your enthusiasm as we enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow Scouts. Feel free to bring your board games, role-playing games, or card games as well. We'll also get outdoors and explore the surroundings of John Bryan — some serious hiking and orienteering as we visit Clifton Gorge. 

And we'll be staying indoors at the beautiful main cabin at Camp Birch: The Turner Conference Center! This is usually one of the best attended events, so don't miss it!

NOTE:  You assume full responsibility of any electronics you bring to the camp out. While we have had a good track record of nothing being damaged, we want to be clear that the Troop has no responsibility.   

NOTE:  We will NOT be eating Friday night as a Troop, so please eat before the campout.
