About Troop 180

Boy Scout Troop 180 is based in Carmel, Indiana. We are part of the Del-Mi District in the Crossroads of America Council. Our charter organization is the Carmel Golden K Kiwanis.

Our Troop is of medium size, currently consisting of approximately 30 scouts. We also have an active base of adult leaders/volunteers dedicated to helping scouts along their journey.

Our troop originally formed on March 1, 1992. We are proud to report that in the time since the troop formed through January 23, 2018, a total of 81 Scouts from our Troop have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. A list of the Troop 180 Eagle Scouts can be found on the troop Eagle Scout Honor Roll.




Our current Scoutmaster is Mr. Eric Sampson, who has served in this capacity since February 2014. Since Troop 180 was formed in 1992, the troop has had 5 Scoutmasters. Here is the list of the Troop 180 Scoutmasters:
