Our strength comes from the youth leaders, active Scoutmaster Team, effective Troop Committee, and participating parents. Our sponsoring organization is the fantastic community of St. Andrew Lutheran Church. 

Troop 618 & 5618 are a mix of older experienced scouts (Life and Eagle rank), new scouts (Scout through Second Class rank), and proficient scouts (First Class and Star ranks).  

Troop 618 has about 45 active members and Troop 5168 has about 10.

The troop meets every week year-round (with some exceptions to holidays and spring and winter break, as noted on our calendar) and camps every month, along with a week-long summer camp experience. The varied program delights younger scouts and challenges older scouts.
