Welcome to the Website of Boy Scout Troop 626!

We are the Chicago Area Council's newest Boy Scout Troop with over seventy Boy Scouts. We are a chartered organization of Queen of All Saints Basilica.

We are a troop run by boys for boys. Our troop operates using the traditional 'patrol method'. The Boy Scouts are one of the few organizations for youth where the adults are not 'in charge'. The boys manage most aspects of our troop operations under the guidance of our adult leaders.

We represent Scouts from the communities of Sauganash, Edgebrook, Wildwood, Forest Glen, Albany Park, Jefferson Park, Irving Park, Avondale, Portage Park, and Rogers Park/West Ridge. All boys between 11 and 18 years of age are welcome to join our troop.

Our troop meets weekly on Monday evenings from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM in the Queen of All Saints School cafeteria, located at 6230 N. Lemont Avenue Chicago, Illinois 60646

Posted by mhoffman on Jul 17 2015 - 3:13pm

Troop 626 has reserved ONLY the week of July 17-23, 2016 for Makajawan, as we plan to also offer a trip to Owasippe in June 2016, as well as a High Adventure trip in late July and STEM Camp in mid August.  Please plan ahead and block out this week well ahead of time.  We will need a good number of adult leaders to support all of these excursions, so please help out if you've never gone to a summer camp before.

Merit Badge Resources available on this website!

Posted by mhoffman on Mar 8 2015 - 8:05pm

If you are new to the troop and/or are looking for information on Boy Scout Merit Badges, you don't have to go googling all over the interweb.  You can start on our very own Merit Badge page.  Give it a look!  An important document attached on this page is a list of the Merit Badge counselors in the area.  If you want to earn a merit badge outside of a summer camp or finish a partially earned badge, you will need to work with a merit badge counselor
