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

Makajawan 2016 - Space still available both weeks

Posted by mhoffman on Mar 25 2016 - 5:07pm

If you have not decided whether to go or not, there is still time to sign up!  But...final payment and confirmed rosters are due by May 23, so don't wait too much longer.  We have reserved two weeks at Makajawan:  Week 3 - July 10-16 and Week 4 - July 17-23.  The Northwoods of Wisconsin are beckoning and if you listen carefully, you can hear the Loons calling.  Makajawan is a great camp for earning merit badges and for the first year scouts to complete many of the Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class rank requirements.  A week well spent, indeed!

Merit Badge Resources available on this website!

Update:  the 2016 list of Merit Badge Counselors for the Indian Trails District is now attached within the Merit Badge page!  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
