Welcome to Troop 186

Boy Scout Troop 186 is chartered by the Knights of Columbus of Saint Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Rochester Minnesota. We are in the Hiawatha District of the Gamehaven Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

We meet every Monday night from 7:00-8:30pm in the activity room in the Parish Center basement. We work on merit badges, advancement, and plan our monthly campouts. We also participate in a number of community activities and service projects.

If you would like more information about Troop 186, please contact the Scoutmaster, Brett Parks, or the Webmaster advisor, Bob Techentin.

Many Point Summer Camp

The Troop will be going to Many Point Scout Camp August 8-15.  This camp is not recommended for new Scouts, who should attend the excellent Brownsea (Tenderfoot/Second/First Class) program at Camp Decorah. 

Many Point offers many great activities for older Scouts, where older is defined as going into 8th grade.  Registration for these "Older Scout Adventures" opens March 15 at noon.  While there has never been a "run" on these registrations before, Scouts may want to contact Mr. Warrington about registering early.  The activities can be found at http://manypoint.org/content/older-scout-activities
