Trek ‘N Treat

We are organizing a hike this upcoming Tuesday (10/27) in downtown Naperville. It is a fairly short hike (~1 mile), and will include some Halloween candy and hot chocolate. We are doing “lug-a-mug” for the hot chocolate – that means bring your own mug. Also, properly discard all candy wrappers. Remember – a scout is considerate of the outdoors. We will be meeting at Naperville Central High School (NE parking area, enter off Aurora Ave at lights, see below) and ending at the Riverwalk Grand Pavilion.

Date: Tuesday, October 27th
Time: 5:00 PM (should be done by 6:00 PM)
Location: Starting at Naperville Central High School parking lot and ending at the Riverwalk Grand Pavilion
Starting Place: Naperville Central High School parking lot (see map below – make sure to go to correct parking lot – enter off Aurora Ave at the lights)
Ending Place: Riverwalk Grand Pavilion – there is parking nearby – 670 W Jackson Ave Parking or along Honorary Sindt Memorial Ct (see second map below)
What to Bring: COVID 19 mask, bag for candy, mug for hot chocolate
Contact Number in case you can’t find us: Mr. Fleming cell 815-529-0257

It is forecast to be cold (mid 30’s degF), so dress accordingly. Halloween costumes are not recommended as they may not be favorable to hiking/proper vision for safety reasons.
Also, please plan to follow the COVID 19 Safety Protocol and Guidelines – including bring a mask.

Online Merit Badges

Troop 75,

As we all are working under COVID-19 conditions, we thought it would be important to assist our older scouts looking to get some merit badges for advancement. There are numerous opportunities online that can be used in order to accomplish this task. Before signing up, please make sure to get the approval from the Scoutmasters (all_scoutmasters at napervilletroop75.org). Some example MBU (Merit Badge Universities) that can be found online:

If you have any issues with registration you may need to reach out to the event organizer as we will not have access to their systems. We will try to post more opportunities here as we find them.

Thank you.

Troop 75 of Naperville

Who are we?
We are a medium sized troop in the Indian Prairie District of Three Fires Council. We welcome scouts from both local school Districts 203 & 204 along with all other surrounding districts.

We pride ourselves on the fact that we are a boy run troop. We actively encourage our youth leaders to play an active role in planning and running the troop. Adults offer guidance to the youth leaders and make sure all safety rules are followed.

What do we do?
We offer a year round scouting program that includes weekly meetings, monthly outings, a week-long summer camp and high adventure for the older scouts.

We try and camp outside as much as possible but we do have an occasional indoor outing. Activities include skiing, swimming, hiking, spelunking, rock climbing, canoeing, white water rafting, ziplining, and fishing.


Boy Scouts of America
As a Boy Scout Troop, we are boy led and we follow three core values of Boy Scouts – the Scout Oath, the Scout Law, and the Outdoor Code.
