The History and Future of Troop 1998

Troop 1998 was chartered in 1980 by the Benevolent Protective order of Elks in Frederick MD, We have, since our inception, had the honor of bringing to our community and our nation over 100 Eagle Scouts by the year 2017. 

Troop 1998 is a great place to be if you like the outdoors. We schedule about fifteen camping events throughout the year including three long term summer camps. We like to have a camping event every month. Our goal is to provide the opportunity for young men to learn to work in a group to a common end and we use the outdoors and camping to teach planning, teamwork, leadership and overall empower these young men to advocate for themselves in a safe yet challenging environment.  Our job as adults is to encourage boys to take on challenging activities, see them thru to a successful end, and at the end of the day be able to say "we did it ourselves". 

Troop 1998 meets every Monday there is school during the school year, and every Monday in the summer except holidays.

We meet at 7:00pm at the Elks Lodge located at 289 Willowdale Drive, Frederick MD 21702
