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!



Popcorn Money Due November 24

Posted on Nov 20 2014 - 10:41pm

All money for popcorn is due at the Nov. 24 troop meeting! Please bring your collection envelope with all money enclosed and totalled on the outside. Make sure your name is on the envelope. Mrs. Milby and her helpers will double-check your numbers to make sure all of the amounts are correct. Any difference between the total due and the amount collected on Nov. 24 will need to be made up by parents and then collected later. It is very important that we get our payment in on time to get our full bonus amounts and so YOU earn as much as possible. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Milby at 263-0523 or MilbyFamily5@itv-3.com. 

Webelos Weekend @ Camp Wokanda, Dec. 12-14

Posted on Nov 20 2014 - 10:41pm

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.

Food Collection, Nov. 17 Troop Meeting

Posted on Nov 15 2014 - 10:50pm

Every year for many years, Troop 178 Scouts have gone door to door and collected canned food to donate to needy families in our community. We will continue this tradition on Nov.17. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Jackson Street parking lot at Morton High School (by the football field). Teams of Scouts will be assigned to specific blocks, and we will fan out into the neighborhoods for about an hour of collecting. Dress warm and bring wagons or other conveyance to carry  items back to the school. Food will be donated to United Methodist Church or We Care. Parents are welcome to join and help supervise. See you there!
