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!

Upcoming Events

Vertical Adventures with Hilliard AOLs @ Vertical Adventures
Dec 14 @ 10:00 pm – Dec 15 @ 8:00 am

Scouts and Scouters of Troop 418:

Troop 418 is inviting AOLs fom the Hilliard area to our Vertical Adventures Overnight Lock-in Saturday – Sunday, December 14th and 15th, from 10:00 PM – 8:00 AM at Vertical Adventures, 6513 Kingsmill Court. This is our chance to (once again) show potential new Cub Scout crossovers a good time.  Bring your sleeping bag and pillow, and be prepared to climb!

Please RSVP via TroopTrack to let us know you're coming. The cost is $30 per Scout for climbing and pizza.  You'll need to sign a waiver before you can climb.

Since we anticipate many guests and since Mr. Morris will not be available, we are strongly encouraging parents and guardians to stay and help out this year.  This is always a good time with plenty of photo ops.  Since we are sleeping on the mats indoors it's already toasty warm and comfortable.
