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!
