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.  Out 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 22 years.  Since this time we have had the success of 23 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!

Morally Straight Klondike Derby @ Camp Lazarus
Jan 25 @ 5:30 pm – Jan 26 @ 6:00 pm

Registration:  Registration will be in the Log Cabin from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM on Saturday.  Passports will be handed out as you register.

Camping and Parking: Parking will be in the Camp parking lot.  Vehicles are not permitted in Camp.

Tent camping for units wishing to earn the Polar Bear Award will be available and encouraged but not controlled by the Morally Straight Staff.  The Camporee has reserved all the campsites.  Please check in with Camp Master as you arrive to get a site assignment.

Program: Passports will be given to each Patrol listing the order of cities to visit. Patrols will have ½ hour to complete each activity and will then go to the next assigned a City. We are planning for 6 cities total for each patrol to visit.  Patrols must complete the city challenges in the order of their assigned Passport.

All Passports must be turned in at the Dining Hall as each patrol finishes.  Hot Chocolate and popcorn will also be available at the Dining Hall.

The Polar Bear certificate will be awarded to all Scouts and Scouters who camp outside either Friday night or Saturday night.

Leave-No-Trace:  Each unit is on their own.

Dress:  Dress appropriately for the weather.

Unit Leader Notes:  We ask all units to use traditional Klondike Sledges (which will need to be modified to look like a race car).  Plans have been included as guidelines, but there is no intent to disqualify any entries. There will be bonus points, however, for sledges that are within specs and that can bear the weight of equipment and hold together for the weekend.  Sledges will be judged for approved length of 6 feet and width of 18 inches. Accessories may be added – a canvas snow curtain as a snow guard front and sides will keep equipment dry.  Additional points will be awarded for sledges decorated for the Camporee Theme.

Patrol Equipment:  The following equipment and supplies are required for each patrol entry. They should be transported on the Klondike Sledge and available through the event.

Please check the District Web Site for any revisions or last minute changes. Dress for the weather! Layered clothing, leather boots, etc.  Think Snow!!!
