About troop 940

Troop 940 is chartered by St. John Parish of West Chester.

We are part of the Ft. Hamilton District of the Dan Beard Council of BSA.

We meet on Thursday nights from 7:00pto 8:30p at the St. John Center.

St. John is located at 9080 Cincinnati-Dayton Rd., West Chester, OH 45069


The Troop is boy led, with adult leaders facilitating the program by providing guidance and advice. Boys enter the program wide-eyed and full of expectations of fun and adventure. The Troop challenges the boys throughout their time with us. As young Scouts they are taught not by adults in the troop, but by older, experienced Scouts, perpetuating the program’s success.
