Boys and Girls in grades K-5 for Cub Scouting FUN! We have program, we have Leaders, we just need a few boys or girls to make Pack 3166 a reality. Our first Cub Scout, Jason, is waiting for a few fellow Cubs to work and play with. Please help us get the word out. Cub Scouting is fun, and we want to share it.

Young Ladies:
Troop 166 is still looking to welcome you to our program of camping, hiking and leadership development. If you’re already involved in Girl Scouting, great! There’s no reason you can’t get the benefits of BOTH great programs. Feel free to come visit one of out Troop meetings on Wednesday nights and just say hello. We’ll show you what our program looks like, and maybe, you’ll like it, too.

As a matter of fact, Troop 166 is continuing to grow! In this last month we welcomed our newest Scout, Abdul. We look forward to Scouting with Abdul, and hope he has a great time as a Scout.

As to what we’re been doing this month:
  • Sunday, October 14th, we competed in the Orienteering meet at St. James Farm Forest Preserve, near Warrenville, IL. Our Quartermaster, Zak, not only finished 17th out of 43 on the White (beginner) Course, but he finished 3rd out of 15 on the Orange (intermediate) course. Pretty awesome!

  • Saturday, October 27th, we faced the terrors of the Haunted Hike. After completing the hike we took a head-count. Everyone had one, so we considered it a success.

  • Sunday, October 28th, we competed in the Orienteering meet at Stoney Run Forest Preserve, near Hebron, IN. Here Zak finished 5th out of 7 on the Orange course.

  • Sunday, November 4th, we competed in the Orienteering meet at Poplar Creek Forest Preserve, near Hoffman Estates, IL. Our SPL, Elijah ran his first course here, finishing 2nd out of 4 on the White course, while Zak finished 6th out of 9 on the Orange course.

  • Saturday, November 10th, we visited the LaFollette Park Pool to improve our swimming skills.

  • Sunday, November 11th, we competed in the Orienteering meet at Freeman Kame Forest Preserve, near Gilberts, IL. Elijah and Zak teamed up here to finish 6th out of 12 on the Orange course.
Yeah, we’re getting pretty good at Orienteering, aren’t we?

Coming up in December, we’ll be visiting our favorite indoor archery range to hone our skills with bow and arrow. We’ll also be visiting Camp Sullivan, where we’ll take advantage of their climbing wall, and just maybe, take out the old telescope in hope of spotting the new comet in the neighborhood.
