Welcome to Troop 178!


Welcome! Thanks for visiting the Troop 178 website. We're an active, growing troop with a long tradition of building character, leadership and citizenship in young men. In addition to our weekly meetings, we hold monthly outings that include camping, hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, and many other season activities. In Troop 178, boys get a chance to learn, to grow, and to be their best with some of the best people you will find anywhere. Take a look around...we'd love to have you join us for the Scouting adventure of a lifetime!



Hikers Triumph Over Downpour!

Posted on Aug 26 2014 - 11:00pm


Seven happy hikers set off on a 10 mile hike on Sept. 23 at Jubilee State Park, only to encounter a torential downpour about halfway into the first five miles. Rain, wind, and thunder could not dampen their spirits as they sloshed up to a shelter for lunch. Since there appeared to be no break in the weather, the hike was ended short of the original goal, but it ended up being an adventure to remember. Had the sun shined all day, it would have been just another hike. Thanks to the adult leaders who also endured the rain and wind in order for the Scouts to have this experience.
