WELCOME TO BOY SCOUT TROOP 18
Troop 18, chartered in 1925 by Glenn United Methodist Church, is one of Atlanta's most successful and active Boy Scout Troops. We meet every Tuesday night at 7:30PM at the Scout Hut behind the Glenn Youth & Activities Building (the YAAB) on North Decatur Road.

Any boy between the ages of 11-17 interested in joining our Troop or who would simply like to learn more, please click on the "About Us" tab or "Contact Us." We encourage all boys to attend.

The Hightower Trail SLT (Scout Leader Training) is scheduled for the evenings of October 2, 9, 16, and 23.  The matching ITOLS (Introduction To Outdoor Leadership Skills) is scheduled for November 1-2.  Note:  The HT training classes do not always happen due to low registration.  If someone signs up for them, they would not know until it was too late to take a different class whether or not the HT class will happen.
 
If you cannot make the four night training sessions you can also take the classwork session in one full day session. There are two single-day SLTs coming up:
 
September 2 Foothills District (Marietta)
September 27 Northern Ridge District (Alpharetta)  
 
After completing SLT, the scouter then needs to take ITOLS.  There are a couple of districts in addition to HT that have ITOLS weekends in September or October:
 
September 12-14 Southern Crescent District (South Fulton)
September 26-28 Sppalachian Trail District (Canton)
October 3-5 Silver Comet Trail District (Acworth)
October 3-5 Foothills District (Camp Windy Water near Cartersville)
 
It is generally not necessary to take SLT and ITOLS from the same district.  If someone wanted to go to a single-day SLT and then take ITOLS with Hightower Trail, that would probably be OK (need to check to confirm this).  There are other districts offering ITOLS to anyone interested regardless of where they took SLT.
 
With all of these options, there is really no reason why T18 adults should not be trained!

congratulations to a successful Eagle Project

Hiking Merit Badge

Posted by admin on Jul 24 2014 - 8:40pm

For those interested, next Wednesday I will be conducting a 20-mile hike for the Hiking Merit Badge.  We will meet at the Scout Hut at 6 AM and drive up to Amicalola Falls.  We will hike up and over Springer Mountain and back; all together somewhere around 21 miles.  You'll need a day pack with lunch and snacks, at least 2 liters of water, raingear, and any other items like walking stick etc...  I'll provide a map and compass as well as safety gear.  The trip is limited to 7 Scouts.  I'll be driving up in my vehicle.  Bring cash for breakfast and dinner.  I expect us to be back around 7 PM.  The hiking portion should take around 9 hours with breaks included.  If you have any questions please give me a call at (918)906-5431.
