Welcome to Troop 178!


Welcome! Thanks for visiting the Troop 178 website. We're an active, growing troop with a long tradition of building character, leadership and citizenship in young men. In addition to our weekly meetings, we hold monthly outings that include camping, hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, and many other season activities. In Troop 178, boys get a chance to learn, to grow, and to be their best with some of the best people you will find anywhere. Take a look around...we'd love to have you join us for the Scouting adventure of a lifetime!

Thank You to Food Collectors!

The annual pre-Thanksgiving food drive moved to a new location this year but it was equally successful! Pictured here are some of the items collected on Nov. 23 in the neighborhood around Jefferson School. All items were donated to We Care in Morton the next day. Thank you to all who came out and knocked on doors in the cold, and to Debbi Draeger for the hot chocolate and Shelly Mathias for making the delivery to We Care.

Family Life Merit Badge Begins Nov. 30

Posted on Nov 28 2015 - 8:44am

Mr. Sheppard sends his apologies for not being able to attend the troop meeting on Nov. 16. But he WILL begin the Family Life merit badge at 6:15 p.m. before the Nov. 30 troop meeting, and will continue meeting before regular troop meetings unless there is no scheduled meeting or a special. This Eagle-required merit badge takes as long as three months to complete, so the winter months (especially over the holidays) is a good time to get it started and get it done. If you have questions about the merit badge or meetings, please contact Mr. Sheppard at 309-256-8339.

Let's recognize and celebrate rank advancements and merit badges earned over the past few months at a Court of Honor Dec 14, 7:00 p.m. at the Morton United Methodist Church. Our last Court of Honor was before school started, so it's time to get together again and start looking toward the new year.
