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!

HPC Pre-Summer Church Work Day @ Hilliard Presbyterian Church
May 15 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

In preparation for the possible reopening of the church later this year, the HPC Facilities Committee wanted to cordially invite you and your family to participate in HPC's Pre-Summer Church Work Day on Saturday, May 15th from 9am-12pm.

Any amount of time would be greatly appreciated, as we'll have quite a bit of tasks that need to be completed: everything from cleaning the windows and floor in the Sanctuary to removing/replacing light bulbs and even some touch-up painting.

Thank you for your help and time in advance. We look forward to working with you in maintaining our church home.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or if we can be of assistance, please feel free to contact Matt Butterworth directly at 614-537-2306 or mbutterw2009@gmail.com. Thank you again, stay safe and have a wonderful week!
