We are Troop 494 in White Bear Lake, Minnesota:The biggest, most active, and best troop in Many Waters District!
We have over 50 boys, but every boy matters! Our adult
leaders see that every boy gets the attention he needs. Once a boy
joins our troop, we ensure that he can participate in every activity,
even if cost is an issue.
We go camping every month: canoeing, white water
rafting, hiking, biking, and spend a week at Tomahawk. Plus we have an
annual High Adventure campout for boys 13 and over which has included
mountain hiking at Philmont, sea kayaking, scuba diving and sailing at
SeaBase, and canoeing in the Boundary Waters.
Over 60 Eagle Scouts have graduated from our troop. We
have an active advancement program that gives the boys every
opportunity to advance in rank and reach Scouting's highest honor: Eagle
We have a large group of dedicated adult volunteers who make our troop so successful.
