Welcome to Troop 140
“Where Adventures Never Stop”
Troop 140 meets every Monday at 7:30 pm in the main hall OR the football field at St. Mary Church, on the NW corner of Lake Cook and Buffalo Grove Roads in Buffalo Grove, Illinois. Troop 140 is actually 2 troops, one for boys and one for girls. We welcome everyone to come join us and experience the joys of scouting!
We are a large and very active high adventure troop with a variety of activities and scheduled monthly outings.
In our 65 year history since 1957, we have helped over 200 scouts to become Eagle Scouts! This is an achievement that we are extremely proud of! Congratulations to all our Eagles!
For First Year Scouts, our focus is on rank advancement with a very exciting program, the objective being that every 1st year scout achieves First Class by the end of their first year.
For older scouts, we encourage them to act as leaders and help the younger scouts with advancements. There is also opportunities at meetings for merit badge work, activities, and rank advancement. Our troop is very active and we encourage scouts to follow our 5 year plan.
