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 short year history, since February 1964, we have achieved what few if any other troops have. During our last Eagle Court of Honor on April 15th, 2021, we honored our 3 newest Eagle Scouts bringing our total to more than 200 Eagle Scouts. This is an achievement that we are extremely proud of! Congratulations to our new Eagles! We are also very proud that in 2019 we added a Girls troop to troop 140!
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.
