WELCOME to Troop 81 - Chicago

Troop 81 is all about fun, making new friends and giving the boys an adventure that they may not get if not in Scouts.  We do an activity every month, with most of the months being campout weekends.  Every year we attend summer camp at Owasippe in Twin Lake Michigan for 2 weeks (the Scouts can go for one week or both weeks).  Our troop has been to 17 states and working on more.  We have attended the Jamboree and Philmont (our troop will be going again this July).  Some of the other great trips that we have taken were to Orlando Fl, where we did a program at MGM and Universal Studios, we went to all the parks and then to the Kennedy Space Center.  We have gone to Charleston SC and stayed on the USS Yorktown Aircraft Carrier and on the same trip we went to a Cherokee Reservation and the Smoky Mountains.  Another trip we went to Gettysburg, then DC where we went to the White House and the Pentagon.   

Many of the Scouts turn 18 and stay on to give back to the troop.  

We consider our troop “our family”.
