Welcome to Troop 95, Medinah, IL !
Troop 95 was originally chartered in 1961 and has a long and active history. For over 58 years Troop 95 has fostered a scout-led troop that has helped shepherd dozens of scouts to the rank of Eagle Scout. Since 2000 we have had over 50 Scouts achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. Regardless of the rank they ultimately achieve, the goals of Scouting: citizenship training, character development and personal fitness, remain important for all Scouts.
Troop 95 competed in the Chippewa Klondike Derby, Camp Big Timber, IL, and spent many hours assembling and lashing together a Klondike sledge, practiced knots, shot BB guns, threw tomahawks, lit camp fires, etc. to compete in the Derby on January 25, 2020.
Nico Gemmati from Troop 95 has recently become a eagle scout!
Camp Blackhawk lies on the shores of Big Blue Lake and is rich in tradition, with roots dating back to the early days of Scouting.
Owasippe Scout Reservation: Camp Blackhawk
From June 21-27, 2020, Troop 95 will camp at Camp Blackhawk on the Owasippe Scout Reservation. The camp is located at 9900 Russell Rd, Twin Lake, MI 49457, and is operated by the Pathway to Adventure Council of Boy Scouts of America.
Why attend? Fun and rank advancements! Last summer, our scouts earned 30 merit badges in one week, including difficult-t0-earn badges and Eagle-required badges.
Online Adult Training
Adult leaders are required to take the BSA Youth Protection Training online. Additionally, almost every BSA required course and certification is online. Non-registered leaders and parents can be certified and it is Troop 95's policy that any adult going on a camp-out or activity MUST be Youth Protection Trained. Everyone is encouraged to take the training. Visit the my.Scouting.org Web site to check out all the courses.
