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

Camp Dewan Campout - Cub Scout Pack 3942 Outdoor Games

Posted by mhoffman on Oct 6 2015 - 8:37pm

Cub Scout Pack 3942 needs Troop 626 to assist with running the Outdoor Games at Camp Dewan on Nov 6-8.  We'd like 10-12 Scouts and 3-4 adult leaders to attend.  This is a GREAT campout for us, as you'll get to teach scout skills to the Cub Scouts and we get to enjoy meals prepared by the Pack 3942 families.  Camp Dewan is an awesome place to hang out for the weekend and has the large barn for recreational activities if the weather is chilly or rainy.  If you are not working at the Troop fundraiser on the same weekend, please join us for a fun weekend in SE Wisconsin.  Please sign up TODAY!!

Troop Fundraiser - You are needed for this to be a success!!

Posted by mhoffman on Oct 6 2015 - 8:21pm

Our Fall 2016 troop fund raiser requires a little sweat equity from all of us.  We are working our own concession stand at all seven Northwestern University football home games at Ryan Field in Evanston, where we sell and serve food and drinks (pop and water) to the hungry and thirsty fans.  It is about an eight hour day and you must stay until the stand is cleaned and remaining inventory counted.  We need a minimum of eight adults and eight Scouts for each game.  20-24 people is even better, as we've been asked to run more than one stand!  Dates with links to the sign up page for the remaining three games are:  Oct 17, Nov 7, and Nov 14.  We need as many different volunteers as possible.  If you've never participated in a troop fundraiser before, it is your turn to invest some of your time and talent.  We had an awesome response for the first four games and have never come up short with volunteers for any troop activity.  Keep the momentum going and please sign up today.  Thank you!

Makajawan 2016 - week of July 17-23 is reserved

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
