Welcome to the Official Website for
Boy Scout Troop 405
Omaha, Nebraska

Troop 405 is a scout run troop. All troop activities such as camping, merit badges and other programs are determined by the scouts. The troop is chartered with Living Faith United Methodist Church at 5310 So 182nd Ave. Meetings are held Monday nights from 7:00 to 8:30.

Our troop has an outdoor program consisting of camping, backpacking, canoeing and service projects. At least one outdoor program is held each month. Past campouts have been held at many different camps including Camps Eagle, Little Sioux and Cedars. We have also camped out at Two Rivers, Mahoney and Indian Cave State Parks, Wilson Island and rafted on the Niobrara River to name a few.

Advancements and merit badge work are generally completed during meetings and campouts.

Each year the troop travels to a regional summer camp. Our past camp adventures include:

Tesomas Scout Camp - Wisconsin
Many Point Scout Camp - Minnesota
San Isabel Scout Ranch - Colorado
Medicine Mountain - South Dakota
Boundary Waters of Minnesota
Camp Mack Morris - Tennessee
