Welcome to Boy Scouts of America Troop 218 of Torrance, California!

Troop 218 is a very active and growing Boy Scout Troop in the South Bay!  In addition to fostering an environment that teaches our boy members life-long skills we love to camp, backpack, hike and--most importantly--have fun!  We are part of the Pacifica District, Los Angeles Area Council, Western Region of Boy Scouts of America (BSA).  Our approximately 35 member troop (and growing, rapidly) is boy-led, meaning that our elected boy leaders plan and execute most of the troop’s activities, under the guidance of an experienced and dedicated adult leadership team that consists of our Scout Master and six (6) Assistant Scout Masters.  Our goal is to create the best environment to guide our boys to become principled young men and help achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. Our most recent Eagle Scout Rank occurred in August 2021.
