Welcome to the website of Boy Scout Troop 194.  Boy Scout Troop 194 is located in Mason, Ohio and chartered by the Mason United Methodist Church.  We are a member of the Hopewell District of Dan Beard Council.  If you are a new visitor, please look around our website and learn about Scouting and our program at Troop 194.  Feel free to email the Troop Leadership if you have any questions.  If you are interested in Venturing, check out the Venture Crew 194 web site.  Thanks for visiting.                                                                                                                                             Now on Facebook!

                     
   Health Form Update Minimize  

Each year, we are required to update our Health Forms for all registered youth and adult members of Troop 194. Please complete sections A, B of the All Scouting Events Medical Form, and then turn it in to the Scoutmaster or Committee Chair.  Only those members who have valid Health and Medical Forms will be permitted to participate in campouts starting in February.

For Summer Camp participation (or events > 72 hours) the additional Section C of the Medical Form is required, and must be signed by a physician.  All BSA Health and Medical Forms, including high adventure camps, can be found at Health & Safety at Scounting.org

Troop Offsite - March 31
Reminder that there will be an off-site at Red Robin at 6:30pm on Mason-Montgomery Road in Deerfield Township. Unfortunately, Intimation Game will not be at Regal so we are going to see Insurgent at 8:10pm. Last time it took awhile for us to get our checks at Red Robin, so it may be easier to pre-order your movie tickets. That way we won't be late for the movie.  Please plan accordingly.
There is no Meeting at MUMC!!!!
