About Troop 162
Troop 162 was founded in 1999 with Brian Musselman as the Scoutmaster. We are chartered with the Cridersville United Methodist Church . For more than 21 years we have strived to provide an excellent scouting experience to the youth of our community.
We are based in Cridersville, Ohio and our troop is a member of the Black Swamp Area Council and in the Old Sycamore District! We have scouts and volunteers from Cridersville, Lima, Wapakoneta and surrounding communities.
Since Troop 162 is a boy-run troop, there is an opportunity for all of the Scouts to gain leadership experience as they grow within Scouts. Elections are held twice a year, which provides opportunities for new leadership positions within the Troop.
Key adult leadership positions are typically held for a more extended period time, although we welcome new leaders transitioning in with Webelos. There are also many volunteer opportunities available for all parents.
