About Troop 351

Troop 351 is actually two troops: Troop 351 for boys and Troop 5351 for girls. The troops meet together and do most outings together. Scouts are often separated into Patrols, a group of about 10 Scouts.

There are 4 Patrols for boys: Hydra, Kraken, Minotaur, and Phoenix.

There are 3 Patrols for girls: Artemis, Valkyrie and Athena

Troop Meetings are every Tuesday during the school year at 7:00 pm in the cafeteria at St. Ignatius School. Scouts should be in full uniform. In the summer, Troop Meetings are every other Tuesday at 7:00 pm at the same place but scouts can wear more casual clothing. Ideally it will be a shirt from summer camp or something else related to scouting. You can order shirts from the online troop store.

Many of our scouts achieve the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in Scouting. Here’s a list of our past Eagle Scouts. Some of our scouts come from Cub Scout Pack 351. Troop 351 is in the Cascadia District of the Cascade Pacific Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

Troop 351 offers the Pongracz Scholarship to eligible Eagle Scouts.

The main source of income for Troop 351 is running a Christmas Tree lot that starts the day after Thanksgiving.

We are governed by our bylaws (PDF) and run by our Troop Committee. Scouts and parents are expected to follow our Code of Conduct. We would love to have you join Troop 351.

The Troop Leaders are guided by their Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters.

Like most organizations, Troop 351 has a few words and phrases that are unfamiliar to newcomers. We list these on Troop Talk. Another page describes rank and advancement.

Other troops in our area include Portland Boy Scout Troops and Portland Scout Troops for Girls.
