Please feel free to come join us for an upcoming meeting. Our Troop Meetings are held on Mondays each week at Eden Prairie United Methodist Church (map) at 7:00PM. 



Troop 342 was chartered in 1966 and over our history we have had over 90 Eagle Scouts through our Troop. We meet each Monday of the month at Eden Prairie United Methodist Church.Year to year we have between 20 and 40 scouts in the troop. We believe in a scout lead troop that has an active outdoor experience. We have a variety of campouts during the year including campouts for Shooting Sports, Biking, Aquatics, Snow Sports, and week long summer camp to name a few. Each year we also do a high adventure trip.  In 2013 we went to the Atchafalaya High Adventure Camp in Louisiana.  In 2014 we went to Philmont Scout Ranch, and in 2015 we went to the BWCA.   We have one major funding effort each year in March, our annual Pancake Breakfast at the Eden Prairie High School.
