Troop 1518 - The Outdoor Connection

Mojave National Preserve



 Hole In The Wall, Mojave National Preserve, Half Dome Hike, Joshua Tree, and Rainbow Basin

Troop 1518 connects boys to the outdoors, while building leadership skills that will last a lifetime.  Camping and hiking are part of the experience, along with advancing through the scout ranks.  Boys can connect with our community through service projects developed by our prospective Eagle Scouts.  Scouts can choose the activities that most interest them and participate in those that best fit their schedules. We are chartered by the Tustin-Santa Ana Rotary Club, a well-known service organization that supports projects throughout Orange County, as well as at the national and international level. 

We usually hold troop meetings twice a month on Mondays during the school year from 7:00 - 8:30 pm at Pioneer Middle School in Tustin, and host a number of outdoor activities throughout the surrounding region.  Scouts can challenge themselves with high adventure activities such as camping, High Sierra backpack trips, rock climbing, cycling, fishing, skiing/snowboarding, white-water rafting, and kayaking. Our troop usually hosts a Merit Badge Day in late spring or early summer, and we also participate in a BSA week-long summer camp.  More information about earning Merit Badges can be found on our "About Us" page.

The "About Us" page also has photos from some of our adventures and info about our troop.  Or click on "Service Hours" to see samples of our Eagle Scout projects!
