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

Learn How to Luge!

Posted by mhoffman on Dec 11 2014 - 9:10am

Yes, you read that correctly....get your luge on during the weekend of January 16-18, 2015!  We will travel to Muskegon, MI on Friday and return on Sunday.  We have purchased 20 tickets for scouts and rented 2 cabins.  Do you want to go?? Grab a spot and register asap!   Cost is $90 for the whole weekend, includes food and lodging in a heated cabin.  Only additional cost is for gas and spending money for snacks, souveniers. All equipment provided.  If you want to go without luging, the cost is $50.  This is a unique opportunity to experience something that very few people will ever try.  It is the only one of four luge tracks in the US. Learn more at http://www.msports.org/luge.  They have a link on this site page to their youtube videos, which are pretty cool.
