Welcome to Scouts, BSA Troop 626!

Troop 626 is one of the Chicago Area's largest and most active Scout Troops with over sixty Scouts.  We have a linked Boy's and Girl's Troop, both Troops share the 626 number. Both Troops meet on Monday nights, having seperate meetings.  Both Troops will have several "linked" outings and campouts throughout the year.  We are a chartered organization of Queen of All Saints Basilica.

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

Troop 626 is a year-round program for youth 11-17 years old that provides fun, adventure, learning, challenge, and responsibility to help you become the best version of yourself.  If you are new to the Scouting program, our Troop has the resources to get the most out of your scouting experience.  We can set you on the trail to develop a one of a kind skill set, from thriving outdoors to better understanding what you mean to your community - this is the place.

If you are already familiar with the program or just looking to up the ante on your scouting experience, we have you covered.  We are super active and looking for scouts with the same passion that we have.  We have quarterly Courts of Honor, an active advancement program, great support from Youth leaders as well as adult volunteers and plenty of opportunity for positions of responsibilty that smaller troops cannot alway provide.  Stop by and check out the Troop.

Our Troops camps on a Monthly basis. Both troops will go camping seperatly, but there will be several camp outs together. We spend two weeks over the summer at Camp Ma Ka Ja Wan in Pearson, Wisconsin.  We also have an extensive High Adventure program for older scouts, which have led us to some very amazing sites in over 20 States.  We go places, test your limits, push boundaries, and have one-of-a-kind adventures that can’t be found anywhere else. Some of our past trips included canoe & hiking treks in the Atchafalaya Basin, the Black Hills, Boundary Waters Canoe Base, Blue Ridge Mountains, Davis Mountains in West Texas and recently the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.  Troop 626 will continue the adventure with a trip back to the Swamps of Louisiana in 2019.

If Eagle Scout is your goal, we have the resources to help get you there.  Troop 626 has had over 33 Eagle Scouts since it's inception in 2010.  

We represent Scouts from the communities of Sauganash, Edgebrook, Wildwood, Forest Glen, North Park, Albany Park, Jefferson Park, Irving Park, Avondale, Portage Park, Rogers Park/West Ridge and Fox River Grove. All youth between 11 and 17 years of age are welcome to join our troop.

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

New Registration is currently $85.00 for the first year, with recurring Dues currently set at $65.00.

Registration 2020

Posted by spdelacruz on Oct 30 2019 - 9:46am

The BSA has raised their membership dues $37 (per scout) per year, starting January 1st, 2020.  Due to the increase in dues, the Troop will need to raise the registration fee from $65 to $85 for the upcoming year.  Due to the Funraising efforts of the scouts and adults, the Troop is currently able to absorb the additional $17 per scout.  We would like to continue this trend, so please support the Troop's fundraising events as much as possible.  

Welcome Back and Information Night

Posted by spdelacruz on Aug 14 2019 - 10:22am
Parents and Scouts,
       Welcome back from Summer vacation.  This Monday, we are having a welcome back night at QAS in the Benedict Center (Lower Level).  Everyone is welcome, as well as anyone who is interested in our programs.  We will have information for this upcoming year's events, stories and pictures from Summer activities and refreshments.  If you attended Ma Ka Ja Wan this summer please stop in and check over your advancements/Merit Badges earned at camp.  If you are NOT yet a First Class Scout AND attended the Trailblazer (New Scout Program) at camp, please bring your Scout Handbook so we can sign off on the requirements that were completed during camp.  We would like to get everything in order for the Fall Court of Honor in September so we can award every Scout any advancements/merit badges/awards that were earned over the summer.  The Welcome back night will run from 7 PM until 9 PM, it is an informal night so everyone can stop in and leave as needed.
See You There,

Congrats to all new Patrol Leaders
