Welcome to the official website of BSA Troop 718!
Based in Thousand Oaks, California, we have about fifteen active boys ranging in age from 10 to 17 years old. We meet every Tuesday evening between 7:18pm and 9pm at Ascension Lutheran Church, 1600 E. Hillcrest Dr., Thousand Oaks, CA, in Pederson Hall (the gym). We are generously sponsored by the Rotary Club of Westlake Village Sunrise. Please contact our Scoutmaster, Mr. Evan Hess at (818) 925-4377 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Further information is available through the Conejo Valley District Office of the BSA Ventura County Council, at 805-482-8938.
We are always on the lookout for boys between the ages of 10 and 17 who want to participate in lots of fun activities. Our troop likes to spread the fun! We go camping, rocket launching, bike riding, hiking and scavenger hunting. We also do merit badge work, service projects, and fundraisers, to name just a few.
Troop 718 is very active in fundraising. Eighty percent of all money raised goes back into the scout’s account, which can be used for any Boy Scout activity, including week-long summer camping trips, camping equipment such as backpacks, or even uniforms.
The hardest decision to make is which troop to join. We make it easy by inviting you to join our meetings and talk to our scouts and their parents.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
