What's It All About?


This Boy Scout Troop is chartered by Overbrook Presbyterian Church in the Clintonville area of Columbus, Ohio. (See our 'Favorite Links' to the left)

We're a youth-led troop with a focus on the outdoors. We average a camp out a month. Our aim is to provide a year-round program through which boys in the community can develop into leaders in whatever activity they find themselves.
