Scouts BSA Troop 78

Lincolnshire, IL

Welcome to Troop 78 in Lincolnshire, Illinois

Troop 78 was organized in 1958 to bring Scouting to what was then the small community of Half Day. Today our Troop has about 35 Scouts. We reflect the diversity of our community. We are a Scout-led Troop guided and supported by trained adult leaders and parents. We have awarded over 120 Eagle Scouts! Community Christian Church charters the troop and has been our home for over 50 years. We hold weekly meetings, monthly campouts, sponsor high adventure treks, and community service projects. We attend Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation for two weeks each summer.

The mission of the BSA is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Troop 78 provides outdoor activities, allowing the scouts the opportunity to explore, learn, lead and grow. This supports the Troop's goal of providing a safe environment that allows scouts to have fun while learning skills, leadership and world citizenship.
