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, focus on leadership and personal development, 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 community-related service activities throughout the year. Our Troop attends a High Adventure Base (Philmont Scout Ranch, Florida Sea Base, Northern Tier, Summit Bechtel Reserve) every other year.  

Troop 418 has been in existence for 26 years.  Since this time we have had the success of 41 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:

Get a chance to hear about the Sea Scouts and meet some of the members of Sea Scout Ship 280

WHAT IS SEA SCOUTS?

You can learn to sail, to row, and to keep a boat in shape; you can cruise local waters or go sailing on long cruises far from home. You'll be active in camping, social events, tours, regattas, excursions, and seamanship contests. You'll also have a chance to develop maritime skills that can lead to careers or a lifetime hobby.

Sea Scout Ship 280 has access to multiple boats so you can learn how to sail. During the boating seasons, every member has a chance to try their hand at the tiller, to trim the sails, and all members are taught safe and proper methods of handling boats. Sea Scouts also learn the meaning of buoys and lights, how to take advantage of wind and tide, and how to drop anchor or approach a dock. Day, weekend, and long cruises are held for all ship members.

Who can join?
Sea Scouting is open to both young men and women. You can join if you are 13 years old and have completed the 8th grade OR are 14 years old (regardless of grade). You can be a youth member of the Ship until December 31st the year you turn 21.  Any adult over 21 can be a leader. Members can be only members of the Ship or they can also be registered in another unit of the BSA. Dues are just $30 per year. Most activities are held at Alum Creek Sailing Association, located within Alum Creek State Park
