Congratulations to Bill on more than 50 years as our Scoutmaster
You are incredible!

Welcome to Troop 26! Troop 26, in Tulsa, OK, meets every Monday evening at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. Troop 26 is a boy-led troop with over 790 Eagle scouts since 1969. Bill Shaffer has been the troop Scoutmaster for 53 years and has created an incredible program for thousands of scouts over the years. Today, there are over 120 boys and 70 ASMs (both men and women) registered with the troop. We are focused on developing developing scouts to be strong leaders with upstanding morale character and values. We teach scouts to value the scout oath and law, tradition, leadership, opportunity, adventure, the environment, and each other.

At Troop 26, our goal is to be the most awesome boy scout troop in Tulsa and America. Because of the large number of adult and Eagle Scout support, the troop is able to provide many high quality, exciting programs to our scouts. The programs offered include the following:
