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.
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.
