Boy Scout Troop 18 has been a pillar of the Gasport community for over 60 years now. Hundreds of boys have gone through the program and learned important leadership skills and gained a community service mindset that they carry with them their whole lives.

Today, more than ever, local youth need the Scouting program. Kids are bombarded by bad influences from media and peers and many kids never go outdoors (the staple of the Boy Scout program) because they're too enamored with video games, the internet, and TV.

Boy Scout Troop 18 meets every Wednesday at the Covenant Church on Main Street from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM. The boys go on monthly campouts, regular field trips, and summer camp vacations. You're welcome to bring your son to a meeting to check it out.
