News and Announcements
We have a new meeting night! Troop meetings have been switched to Tuesdays. The first meeting of the year will be Tuesday, September 11th. The first PLC will Tuesday, September 4th.
Plans are in the works for a high adventure trip next summer. This will be either a canoeing trip at the Northern Tier (Boundary Waters area) or a backpacking trip out of Owasippe as part of Manistee Quest. More details in September. And we hope to send some Scouts (and adults?) to Philmont in 2014.
Who we are
We are a Boy Scout troop sponsored by the parish of the Queen of Angels Church, located on the northwest side of Chicago. We are in the Fort Dearborn District of the Chicago Area Council. We are closely associated with the Cub Scouts in Pack 3894. Please go to www.ChicagoCubScouts.com for information on the pack, its dens, and its programs.
Our troop has an active outdoor program that includes week-end camping during the school year and week-long summer camping at Owasippe, one of the best Scout camps in the country. We also have a thriving high-adventure program. In 2005, 2007, 2009, and 2011 a total of twenty-one of our Scouts and eight of our adults have gone on five-day backpacking treks as part of the Manistee Quest program at Owasippe or our own trek on the Ice Age Trail in Wisconsin. Two Scouts have gone twice! We'll hit that trail again in 2013. In 2007, 2008, 2010, and 2012 a total of nine Scouts and four adults have participated in Philmont treks of 12 days and more than 80 miles. We'll head to Philmont again in 2014.
