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!

Snow Base 2016

Posted on Jul 31 2015 - 10:31pm
At a recent PLC Scouts discussed going on a winter camping adventure in January or February 2016. Tomahawk Scout Reservation in west-central Wisconsin, has a winter camping program that comes highly recommended and looks like it would be just the thing to test our endurance and camping skills.

Food from Chik-fil-A for Camp Card Sellers, August 17

Posted on Jul 31 2015 - 10:30pm

You'll never guess which unit in the W.D. Boyce Council sold the most Camp Cards. That's right, it was Troop 178! The total: 129 cards! The top seller was Josh Milby with 24, followed by Jayden Webb, with 20, and Sam Brodhal with 10. Total cash earned for Scouts' camp funds: $774! And because of this spectacular selling, Chik-Fil-A in Peoria (a sponsor of the program) has agreed to provide delicious Chik-fil-A food for Scouts who sold Camp Cards. We have told them that we would like to do this on August 17, but haven't heard yet what the time. Watch for details in the next couple of weeks! Thanks to Tammy Brodahl for heading up the Camp Cards effort, and to all of the Scouts (and parents) who sold cards!

Wilderness Survival Overnighter

Posted on Jul 31 2015 - 10:28pm

Would you know what to do if you got lost on a hike and it was starting to get dark? What if your canoe capsized on a lake and there was no one around to help? What if you had to spend the night in blizzard conditions? You’ll find answers to all of these questions (and more) at the Wilderness Survival Overnighter, August 22-23. You will learn how to start a fire without matches, how to signal for help, how to “stay found,” how to survive in water, what to do when you think you’re lost, how to dress for different weather conditions, and how to perform first aid in the wilderness. You will also build a shelter out of materials you find in the woods, and then spend the night in your shelter. Sound like a challenge? Then sign up for this fun outing at Ingersoll Scout Reservation. By the end of the weekend, you will have fulfilled most of the requirements for the Wilderness Survival merit badge! NOTE: Bring a personal emergency survival kit with you containing the items LISTED BELOW or on pages 12 and 13 of the Wilderness Survival merit badge book.
