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.
