Troop 440 is a boy lead, patrol based, full uniform troop located in the northwest part of Houston, Texas. We are chartered by the Kinsmen Lutheran Church, located at 12100 Champion Forest Drive. Troop 440 is part of Phoenix District in the Sam Houston Area Council.
The troop camps once each month at various places in the State of Texas. Troop meetings are on Monday nights from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM at our Scout Hut in the parking lot of Kinsmen Lutheran Church. We are all about having fun first and foremost, achieving goals, rank advancement, earning merit badges, and learning leadership skills. Our core elements include camping, hiking, rock climbing, swimming, canoeing, backpacking, and more.
August 2014 News...

    We have several activities coming up this month, so please keep an eye open for what interests you.

    We would all like to recognize some of our recent Eagle Scouts. Alex Bigelow and Ty Gadberry. Our most recent Eagle Scout is Ryan Herring. CONGRATS to you fine young men for a job well done!


    Last Sunday, August 10th, Kyle Fernandez, Rodney Bravo and Garrett Warmke had their Eagle Court of Honor. We had 50+ people attend. These three fine Eagle Scouts have been away at College and finally found the time to realize their dream of "Eagling" together. They have been close friends since early the Cub years. They made us all proud. CONGRATS to you as well for seeing it through!
