Ski Trip Upcoming

A ski trip to Sunrise Ski Pack will take place over MLK Weekend 2018. Please be sure to review ski safety and be sure to bring gear for skiing! Please check in with one of the adults for more information. I hope everyone has a good time at the ski area!


New Webmaster

Hello, scouts of Troop 186 of Tucson, AZ. The troop website is back underway and I will post photos from the adventures we do. Ask any question to me at Thanks.


New Eagle

We are pleased to announce our newest Eagle scout Cullen Drenkhahn. Cullen completed his Eagle Board in December and appears in this picture with his mother, father, and brother (all three are men are now Eagles!). With Cullen’s Eagle board completed, he can now focus on finalizing his applications for our nation’s military academies, good luck!


Lock-In and Service

The Scout Hut was hoping on Saturday night as we enjoyed our annual lock-in. Our troop enjoyed a campfire, smores, pizza, games, a movie, and more.

In the morning we hustled up and made quick work of weeds, tree trimming, and taking to keep the Tanque Verde Youth Community Center looking sharp and tidy. img_4032

Mountain Biking


Seven of our scouts enjoyed a vigorous ride Sunday morning as we completed one of the first legs of the Bucky king merit badge. While the requirement was initially only 2 miles we had such fun that it turned in to nearly 5.


Troop 186 was established in 1955 and for just over 60 years has provided a solid and reliable scouting program that reinforces Lord Robert Baden-Powell’s belief that “Scouting is a game with a purpose!”

Our troop is a scout led troop that follows the patrol method where scouts lead other scouts under the guidance of the Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters. Troop 186 is fortunate to have many adults who volunteer with diverse backgrounds in engineering, technology, leadership, ethics, law enforcement, aviation, economics, bush craft, construction, hunting, and communications. Many of these adults continue on as mentors and merit badge counselors long after their own scout has moved on because of their passion for the program. We are a very active troop, and enjoy weekly meetings that focus on scout craft, and weekend activities like hiking, backpacking, boating, water skiing, snow skiing, snowboarding, climbing, orienteering, car camping, and shooting sports.

We meet nearly every Tuesday at 7:00 PM, if you’re ready for fun, we look forward to meeting you.

Colossal Cave Campout

Had a great time at the Colossal Cave campout. Scouts participated in games that included frisbee, tug-of-war, cooking competitions, knife-throwing, and rope work.

Hutch’s Pool Backpack

Excellent hike to Hutch’s Pool just north of Sabino Canyon. We enjoyed the rare treat of cooling off and relaxing underneath the stars after a brisk 6 mile hike with full kit.
