Welcome to Troop 281
We are located in Anderson Township (southeastern Cincinnati) and have been an active troop since 1932. Mike Slone is our boy-led Scoutmaster and Jen Slone is our girl-led Scoutmaster. We are a truly Scout-led troop, with most of our planning decisions made by the Patrol Leaders Council. We are proudly a Journey to Excellence GOLD level troop.
Troop 281 is a youth ministry of the Anderson Hills United Methodist Church. We meet on Tuesday nights from 7:30 to 9 pm in the Kids Rock room.
Thank you for your interest in our troop. If you need help, or you can't find what you're looking for, please let us know by email here. We hope to see you around Troop 281 soon!
