Troop 15 is a friendly, welcoming troop where every scout makes a difference. Our boy-led program for ages 11-17 encourages character-building, citizenship, leadership, personal fitness, and career exploration. We continue to instill a value that has been at the heart of the Boy Scouts of America for over 100 years — be prepared. Prepared. For Life.®
Our troop meets year-round on Tuesday nights from 7:00-8:30 PM at Grace United Methodist Church, 1718 Avalon Ave, Joliet, IL. Please contact us to attend a meeting or join us on an outing.

Past events include: hiking, camping, canoeing, horseback riding, rock wall climbing, archery, Air Fest, and summer camp. Our troop has also participated in several community service projects such as a Thanksgiving food drive, Christmas caroling at a local nursing home, and support projects for our chartered organization. Through these outings our troop strives to develop a balanced sense of self sufficiency, community service, and leadership in our scouts.
