Welcome !

Boy Scout Troop 516 serves Woodridge, IL and surrounding communities. We meet at Willow Creek Elementary School on Friday evenings during the school year & Prince of Peace Lutheran Church when the school is unavailable & during the summer months. We are active throughout the entire year with 12 months of camping, hiking and other activities.

We use the patrol method and are a youth run organization. The role of the adults in the Troop is one of helping the Scouts to learn leadership; to take responsibility and to plan then execute their own activities. Our supervision provides the Safe Scouting for the Scouts while allowing them enough room to learn from their own successes and mistakes. We see Scouting as an ideal program for helping boys learn to become the sort of men that others will respect and look up to.

Scout Sunday

Posted on Jan 12 2019 - 7:40am
Everyone -
Sunday February 10 will be observed at Prince of Peace (POP) Church, our chartered organization, as SCOUT SUNDAY.  As a service project, our troop is organizing the participation of troop members as well as the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts who are members of the church in the church service that will be held on this date.  A variety of roles are possible, including both non-religious and religious roles.  In particular, POP Church has requested that the troop provide an opening and closing flag ceremony for this church service, a non-religious role.  So we will need a minimum of four scouts from our troop to volunteer to participate in this service project (caller; three flag bearers - we will be using the troop's flags).  We are hopeful that additional troop members will volunteer, serving in roles such as color guard, greeter, and handing out bulletins.

Troop Facebook Page

Posted on Apr 13 2018 - 3:38pm

As everyone should be aware, our troop does have a Troop Facebook page where individuals can post scouting related items.  The Facebook page is Boy Scouts Troop 516.  It is a closed page which is only for families and leaders of the troop.  This is a safety reason since we do post pictures from activities for the benefit of our members.  Any member of the group page can add another member.  If you would like to be added, please let one of our leaders know.
