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!



Webelos Weekend @ Camp Wokanda, Dec. 12-14

Posted on Nov 25 2014 - 9:24pm

It's that time again...Webelos Weekend at Camp Wokanda! This is our best opportunity all year to make a positive impression on 4th and 5th grade Webelos and their parents. It's also a chance for you to gain experience teaching some of the Scouting skills you have learned. YOU will plan and conduct the program so our guests can see how a great troop operates. Specific duties and agenda are still in the works, but we know that we will be staying in the Lodge, that there will be great food, we will have an evening campfire program, and there will be a Scouts Own service in the morning. Details will be discussed in troop meetings between now and then. A permission form and Wokanda waiver form are attached and are due Dec. 1.

Ring in the Holidays--Salvation Army Bell Ringing, Dec. 20

Posted on Nov 25 2014 - 9:23pm

The Salvation Army bell ringers are a holiday tradition that symbolizes community service and the spirit of giving. You will have a chance to be a part of that tradition when Troop 178 is scheduled to ring the bells at the red kettle at Walmart on December 20, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. At least two Scouts and one adult will be scheduled for one hour shifts over that five hour time period. If you can work an hour of service into your busy holiday schedule, please call or email Mrs. Draeger to sign up for a shift: 309-264-9454 or mitsi22770@yahoo.com. Merry Christmas!

Popcorn Totals and Top Sellers

Posted on Nov 3 2014 - 10:41pm

Thanks to everyone who made the extra effort to support their troop and earn money for themselves in the annual popcorn sale. Thanks also to Mrs. Milby for her hard work in organizing and promoting the program. We couldn't have done it without her! Now that all orders are turned in, we can announce that total sales for Troop 178 was more than $6000! That is considerably less than last year, but with 19 Scouts participating, represents sales from about half of the troop.
