Troop 405 is a Scout led Troop, founded in 1986. We have a remarkable record of 171 Eagle Scouts to date
(nearly 40% of our Scouts attain the Eagle Scout Rank). Our Scouts have been recognized for performing lifesaving
acts, and have won awards for conservation projects. Our Scouts are members of the National Honor Society, have
received National Merit Scholarships, and include accomplished athletes and musicians. Our Scouts have attained
OA Vigil Rank, served in the US military, and include ordained ministers, and Philmont Scout Ranch employees.
Troop 405 has campouts every month and our Scouts plan the annual Outdoor Program. Campouts focus on rock climbing
and rappelling, caving, cycling, hiking, backpacking, snowboarding, canoeing, kayaking, and fishing. Each summer
Troop 405 attends summer camp - highlights include Hawaii, Colorado, and Virginia. Troop 405's partnership with
Venture Crew 405 allows our Scouts to attend Philmont Scout Ranch every year. Troop 405 annually sends Scouts to
high adventure bases at Philmont, Northern Tier, and Florida/Bahamas Sea Base.
Merit badges are awards earned by youth members of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), based on activities within
an area of study by completing a list of periodically updated requirements. The purpose of the merit badge program
is to allow Scouts to examine subjects to determine if they would like to further pursue them as a career or a vocation.
Our Troop regularly attends Merit Badge events throughout Central Texas. Connor Crowe, Troop 405 Eagle Scout, is close to accomplishing
the completion of every BSA Merit Badge.
