About Us

Overview

We are a Boy Scout Troop in Shawnee, Kansas and have Scouts from a variety of Shawnee Mission and Desoto Schools, including Shawnee Mission Northwest, Trailridge, Rhein Benninghoven, Nieman, Desoto High School just to name a few and we also have several Scouts who are home schooled.


We meet most Tuesday evenings from 7:00pm to 8:00pm at Hope Lutheran Church (Quivira & Shawnee Mission Parkway) .


Troop 358 is "extracurricular friendly".  We believe that boys should grow into well-rounded young men.  We support scouts that are also involved in sports, drama, music, etc.

History

Our Troop has been serving the community for over 25 years, during this time we have had a high retention rate and most boys go on to earn the coveted Eagle Scout rank.

Focus

We're a boy led troop focused on exceptional outdoor experiences, building tomorrow's leaders, and having fun!

Boy Led

Being a boy led troop means the boys make most of the decisions on how they want the troop to run, what activities they will participate in and most importantly learning from those decisions they made.  Adults still play a key role in the boy led process, but it is more of a mentoring role then a leading role..  Besides being mentors for the boys the adults also serve to make sure that all activities are conducted in a safe manner in adherence to the Boy Scouts of America guidelines. community-building events, and in-depth training sessions for our volunteers.
