Boy Scout Troop 166

Ministry Lead: Matt Hahn Contact Phone: (847) 222-1944 Email:

Troop 166 is a Boy Scout organization chartered by the Northwest Suburban Council and sponsored by the St. James Women’s Club. It has been in continuous existence for more than 50 years. Boy scouting is open to all boys who have completed 5th grade or who are 11-17 years old. Boy scouting is designed to develop character and provide values-based leadership training for youth in an environment of responsible fun and adventure. Troop 166 scouts participate in a number of outdoor and indoor activities. They also give back to the parish and community at large by assisting at the parish picnic, working with the Knight of Columbus and by donating time at Frontier Days. The boys meet every Monday night from 7 to 8 p.m.

Cub Scouts

Ministry Lead: Todd Koclanis Contact Phone: (847) Email:

The values of a Catholic community are extended perfectly through the Cub Scouts organization. The Cub Scout promise reminds a boy to do his best for God and his country and to help other people. It also requires the boy’s family to be involved in his achievements. Cub Scouts is open to boys from 1st through 5th grade, at which time they are eligible to become Boy Scouts. “Pack” meetings are usually held once per month during the school year and often involve special activities. “Dens” are small groupings of the “pack” organized by grade level.

Girl Scouts

Ministry Lead: Beth Schultz Email:

The values-based Girl Scout program has something to offer every girl, from kindergarten to eighth grade who agrees to the Girl Scout Promise. The Girl Scout Promise reminds a girl to do her best for God and her country and to help other people. The purpose of Girl Scouting is to inspire girls with the highest ideals of courage, confidence, and character. Whether in a Girl Scout troop, or as an individual member, each girl can look forward to making new friends, discovering more about herself and the world around her, learning new skills, and tackling contemporary issues under the guidance of dedicated and caring adult volunteers. It’s a place where girls belong!
