Welcome to Troop 18!

Our troop serves Bend, LaPine, Redmond and SunRiver, OR; is part of the Crater Lake Council and chartered by Nativity Lutheran Church of Bend, OR as part of Boy Scouts of America. The Scouts in our Troop are dedicated to helping their fellow Scouts have great adventures that may not otherwise be available to them if they weren’t in Boy Scouts. Our troop has a great tradition of community service, outdoor adventures and Scouts becoming Eagle Scouts for more than a decade so if you are looking for a Troop, please come and visit.

The Scouting adventure begins at Troop 18 weekly meetings where boys learn skills, earn merit badges and achieve advancement. The program is enhanced by monthly camping and seasonal adventures like camping, fishing, hiking, snow camping, and trekking the Cascade Mountain range. We have a great program for learning, character building and leadership.

Troop 18 helps Scouts advance to the highest rank of Eagle Scout. Scouting is cool and great fun at Troop 18! We believe Scouting will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for your son. To learn more about the benefits of Scouting you can contact the Scoutmaster, Rob Sloan at Scoutmaster@bend18.mytroop.us or Committee Chair, Fred Schroeder at CommitteeChair@bend18.mytroop.us and even schedule a visit.

For members of the Troop, please log-in and get the latest information from activities, training, community service and how to contact others in the Troop!
