Welcome to the Official Website for Boy Scout Troop 352, Glen Ellyn, IL 60137

OUR MISSION: To provide an opportunity for Scouts to learn how to LEAD. We do this in a safe, enriching environment, promoting fun and adventure. We encourage personal development of character and integrity in our Scouts.

TROOP PROFILE: Boy Scout Troop 352 is excited that you are viewing this webpage. We are a hands-on, active troop that fosters the patrol method originally developed by Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts. Through the patrol method, the boys run their own program, plan and execute their meetings and outings, and learn by their successes and failures. The troop draws most of its members from the south side of Glen Ellyn, the South East side of Wheaton, and South West side of Lombard. Scouts who join typically feed into Glencrest Middle School and Glenbard South High School.

OUR SPONSOR: The St. Thomas United Methodist Church is our chartered organization representative group.

OUR GOAL: Troop 352 strives is to make learning of scout skills fun and exciting. We use advancement as stepping stones in the development of responsibility, character, citzenship and leadership skills as well as physical fitness.

WE MEET: We meet Tuesday nights 7:00 PM - 8:30pm in the basement of St. Thomas United Methodist Church (Rt 53, 2 blocks north of Butterfield Road)

WHO CAN JOIN: Anyone interested in Scouting is welcome. Scouting is available to any young man who has not turned 18 yrs old.

PADS service hour opportunity

Posted on Jan 25 2014 - 5:43pm

This Friday Jan 31 we have a service opportunity to help with cleanup after PADS overnight at First Presbyterian Church in Glen Ellyn from 6am to 7:15am.  As you know it has been very cold of late resulting in crowded conditions at the PADS overnite sites. Our job will be things like gathering up pads, pillows, sheets and pillowcases, putting away tables and chairs, and sweeping. Between troops 352 and 45, we hope to staff this cleanup. I will be participating and can pick up scouts and drop you off afterwards, provided that I have one of my kids or another adult with me. If this time schedule doesnt fit your school start time, you can arrange your own ride home earlier than 7:15 if needed.  Please enter the building on the west side of the building.  This is the same church Troop 352 worked at a few years ago in the summer. I will put open this event for registration, so please register on our web site.  Thanks.   -Mr. Olp
