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 29 years. Since this time we have had the success of 48 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!
