About Us

Who are we?

Troop 1 is a Scouts BSA troop located in St. Charles, IL, in the Fox Valley District of Three Fires Council, Boy Scouts of America. Troop 1 was founded in 1913, making it the oldest troop in the area and one of the oldest troops in the United States. Troop 1 has been chartered with the American Legion Post 342, St. Charles since 1934.

What do we do?

The troop has scout-led meetings on Monday nights at 7 pm in St. Charles, IL. In addition to weekly meetings, we go camping at least once once a month, sometimes even more. We also do lots of other activities on the side, including hiking and cycling.

Once a year, our troop hosts a High Adventure for our older scouts. The High Adventure is a difficult but fun long-term camping trip chosen by the scouts.
