Boy Scouts of America Prepared for Life


Troop 180 meets on Tuesday nights from 7:00 to 8:30 pm at Mountain View United Methodist Church across from Forest Middle School at 1077 Viewpoint Lane.  We currently have 40+ Scouts, 11 to 17 years of age, in ranks from Scout through Life. We produce multiple Eagle Scouts each year due to our extensive program, outstanding adult leadership and active Scout advancement. 

Our activities include camping, backpacking, biking, canoeing, hiking, cooking, fishing, and others. We aim for at least one overnight trip and one day or patrol event per month. We attend summer camp every year with scouts participating in all of the programs at multiple locations. We teach multiple merit badges within our Troop, such as First Aid and Cooking and attend Merit Badge College when it is offered.
