We are Troop 400, serving North Durham, Bahama and the surrounding area. Our Troop is very active... every month of the year!

We camp every month, we have a Troop activity every month, and we meet every week. We participate in high adventure treks, Camporees and the Order of the Arrow. We do all of these things because that is what the Scouts in our Troop have chosen to do. The Scouts choose the activities, plan the activities and execute those plans, because we are a Scout-Run Troop, in every sense of that term.
