Troop 518 at summer camp in 1998

Re-chartered in 1996, Troop 518 meets at Shadowbrook Baptist Church in beautiful downtown Suwanee, Georgia. We are a non-denominational troop and proudly use the patrol method to guide young men toward a life based on character while teaching them leadership and outdoor skills. We are an active troop concentrating on backpacking with an outing planned for every month of the year. With the help of our Scout leadership and numerous parent volunteers we have earned the Quality Unit award every year since re-charter. Come visit us. Come join us. Come share some outdoor adventure.

  • BSA TROOP 518
    If you are looking for a great Boy Scout Troop in Suwanee, GA then look no further. BSA Troop 518 has been active under the same core leadership, with lots of help from involved parents, since 1996. We operate out of the Youth Building behind Shadowbrook Baptist Church in downtown Suwanee. (See the map in the "Maps" section for more details.) Our program runs all year long, and meets almost every Tuesday at 7 PM. Our meetings are interesting and fun, and we try to end them promptly at 8:30. Our core interest is backpacking and hiking on the beautiful trails of north Georgia, but we also do caving, camping, indoor rock climbing, swimming, and a host of other activities sure to get your son enthused about the great outdoors.

    We know your son will enjoy his time with us because our Scouts choose every one of our activities. We believe that the best BSA troops are run by the boys themselves, and if you visit you'll see leadership training in action. In Troop 518, adults act only as safety nets and mentors. Our Scouts learn by doing.

    We hope to meet you and your son soon.
