About Troop 401

Troop 401 is one of the longest-running Boy Scout Troops in the Chief Seattle Council and in the state, looking forward to our centennial in 2023.  Troop 401 serves the community of Auburn.

Troop 401, in conjunction with it chartering partner, the Kiwanis Club of Auburn, has provided a scouting program since 1923 in the Cascade foothills community.

What began as Troop 1 under Scoutmaster Harlan R. Stone over 85 years ago, remains as strong and visible in the Auburn community today.

Troop 401 of today is 40 strong under Scoutmasters John Wilson, Chris Cushing & Gordon Bair.

The year-round program is filled with activities and service – from camps and hikes, work parties to special tours, fundraisers to cleanup detail. With few exceptions, the troop meets Tuesdays from 7 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.

Troop 401 is proudly keeping the tradition alive by upholding the spirit and practice of the scout tenents:
