The Boy Scout model is to be "Boy Led / Adult Guided". Here, the Scouts are in charge and make the decisions about weekly/monthly agendas and choosing our monthly camping destinations. Adult leaders provide an environment that allows boys to experience what it means to be a "boy scout". Our strong weekly attendance, facilities, and the attraction of boys from the La Grange, IL area, confirms our "old school" approach is exactly what boys are searching for.
If this sounds like something you (or your son) would be interested in for yourselves, PLEASE feel free to contact us. If you have any questions about Scouting or the way this troop operates, please check out our FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page.
We are a troop of about 45 scouts. We hold traditional ceremonies, meet weekly, all-year-round, and have fun outings each month (See the sample list on our FAQ Page).
We especially welcome:
- 2nd years Webelos Scouts and parents searching for a Boy Scout troop that is right for them
- Current Boy Scouts who may be "bored" or having other issues in their current troops
- Former Scouts who may have quit before giving another troop a try
- Boys with disabilities are welcome. Boy Scouts is for all boys in grade 6 through their 18th birthday
