Our Troop Tagline is: “Adventure, Achievement, Fun!”


Scouts crave adventure and Troop 186 delivers. We schedule a year-round calendar of outdoor activities, including:

  • Hiking
  • Canoeing
  • Camping
  • Swimming
  • Fishing
  • Touring

Safety is always our first concern. Scouts learn to experience the outdoors with skill and confidence.

The troop’s week-long visit to Webster scout camp in Ashford is an annual highlight.

While learning about self-reliance, they also learn the value of teamwork, camaraderie and of experiencing the world around them.


Troop 186 has a long history of helping scouts climb the ladder of achievement.

We are proud of our ever-growing Eagle Hall of Fame, which recognizes the many scouts who have obtained scouting’s highest and most coveted rank.

But achievement is emphasized for all scouts in the troop, not just those aiming for Eagle.

Our weekly troop meetings include regular sessions aimed at helping scouts attain any of the many merit badges that scouting offers.

Our patrol structure is designed to encourage scouts to take on more leadership and responsibility as their skills grow.

We encourage public service through a variety of projects that enhance our community, including the annual Scouting for Food drive that gathers tons of non-perishables for the needy.


Scouting wouldn’t be scouting without a healthy dose of fun.

Our troop members love the experience of camping and hiking, and the sense of exploration that goes along with it.

Our weekly troop meetings regularly feature activities whose main purpose is enjoyment.

It’s all about balance — and the combination of adventure, achievement and fun that you’ll find in Scouting is unbeatable.
