Welcome to Troop 85!
Troop 85 is a Boy Scout troop chartered to St. Luke the Evangelist Catholic Church in Beavercreek, Ohio. First chartered in 1959, Troop 85 has operated continuously for almost 50 years. We are part of the Chillicothe District of Tecumseh Council 439.
Troop 85 is open to all boys who are older than 11 (or who have completed the 5th grade) and who are younger than 18. Boys younger than 11 or who have not yet completed the fifth grade are encouraged to visit Cub Scout Pack 85.
For Klondike 2014, 6 BSA Troop 85 boy scouts and 2 adult leaders went to a Winter Camporee event at Camp Miakonda, near Toledo, OH from 17-19 January. Matt M., Michael B, John Paul B, Michael P, Jordan H, and Christopher H went on the trip, with Jordan as senior patrol leader and Chris as a patrol leader. Klondike is an event where, using supplies brought with them by sled, Boy Scout patrols complete certain events relating to scouting skills. Some events include fire building/cooking, first aid, compass, woodcraft, and knots/pioneering. Our troop did well overall. In addition to the event, they also stayed overnight, and camped in below-freezing temperatures. Brrrr. Many thanks to Mr. Madsen and Mr. Price for being the adult leaders!
This is the calendar of all events for the year.
And here it is.
