Welcome !

Based at Glenview Community Church, Troop & Crew 156 has served its community for more than 50 years. As one of the largest and most active Boy Scout units in Northeast Illinois, T-156 has a proud tradition of excellence. In the past five years the Troop has produced 16 Eagle Scouts.

This is a "boy led" Troop with emphasis on developing leadership ability and other other important life skills and values. The patrol method is an important part of the program and outdoor adventures, service projects and special events are scheduled year-round. It's not uncommon to have as many as three different activities the boys can choose from each month. Troop 156 is also proud of it's diverse culture with many different races and religions represented.

In addition to the traditional Boy Scout Troop, there is also a Venturing Crew for high school age men and women. Many of the "V-crew's" activities involve high adventure skills such as rock climbing or wilderness camping.

Currently Mr. Tom Tuten serves as Scoutmaster, supported by a team of 35 trained adult volunteers serving as Committee Members and Assistant Scoutmasters. Mr. Mark Demsky is the unit's Committee Chair.

With the help of 22 Troop 156 Scouts and adults, we were able to successfully install 5 docks on Lake Killian, paint the Health Lodge, and help to clean out the fire bowl. Best of all, 4 of our Scouts are our newest Brotherhood members - congratulations to Aidan Celner, Gavin Dickinson, Daniel Fogarty and David Rugen!

Thank you to everyone who participated!
