Welcome to the official website of BSA Troop 718!
Based in Thousand Oaks, California, we have about thirty active boys ranging in age from 10 to 17 years old. We normally meet on the second, third, and fourth Tuesdays of every month at Ascension Lutheran Church, 1600 E. Hillcrest Dr., Thousand Oaks, CA, between 7:30 and 9:00 pm. We are generously sponsored by the Rotary Club of Westlake Village Sunrise. Please contact out scoutmaster, Mr. Lee Hess, at 805-496-8262 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 16 who want to participate in lots of fun activities. Our troop likes to spread the fun! We go camping, whitewater rafting, rocket launching, bike rides, hikes and scavenger hunts. We also do merit badge work, service projects, and fundraisers, to name just a few.
Troop 718 is very active in fundraising. Eighty per cent 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 letting you come watch our meetings and talking to existing scouts and their parents.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
