Welcome to Troop 95, Medinah, IL !
Troop 95 was originally chartered in 1961 and has a long and active history. For over 25 years Troop 95 has fostered a scout-led troop that has helped shepherd dozens of scouts to the rank of Eagle Scout. Since 1995 we have had almost 70 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 volunteered at the Medinah Park District Halloween Happenings on October 27, 2023 by providing a campfire and s'mores to the costumed attendees. The Scouts camped for the night at the park district and then volunteered at the Roselle American Legion Trunk or Treat with a mystery candy station and a bucket toss into a camping tent.

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.
