posted Jun 22, 2018, 7:30 AM by Cindy Loo   [ updated Jul 11, 2018, 5:20 PM by BSA Troop41sg ]

The Parent Meeting originally scheduled for 7-17-18 will be rescheduled soon. Stay tuned! Scoutbook is an essential tool for tracking your Scout's progress. The online tool is still new to many, and parents need to be actively involved in updating their Scout's achievements. Please join us for the last 45 minutes of our Troop meeting on a date TBD to learn how to use Scoutbook and keep on top of your Scout's accomplishments.

When information is not kept up-to-date in Scoutbook by parents, Scouts may miss out on receiving their rank advancements or merit badges in a timely manner. Please join us to learn how to manage your Scout's achievements.

We'll also talk about upcoming Troop Business during the Parent Meeting.

6-23-18 Totin' Chip Workshop: Learn to Use Your Pocketknife

posted Jun 22, 2018, 7:22 AM by Cindy Loo

Mr. Hauge will be hosting a session for Scouts to earn their Totin' Chip so they can use their pocket knives in time for Summer Camp. Please meet by the Bus Barn at the Sugar Grove Community Building. And bring your pocket knife!

This workshop is to earn their Totin' Chip and the privilege of using a pocket knife and sharp tools during Scouting activities.  Scouts need to read the "Wood Tools Use and Safety Rules" from the "Second Class Scout" chapter of the Boy Scout Handbook.  Scouts must demonstrate to a leader that the Scout knows that the ownership or use of wood tools means responsibility, and that the Scout accepts that responsibility.

Positions of Responsibility Open

Positions of Responsibility will be opening up soon.  Holding a Position of Responsibilty is a requirement for some rank advancements.  Additionally, some scouts might enjoy holding a position. Summer camp is the perfect opportunity for Scouts that are interested to give it a try.   Please let the Scoutmaster know if you have a position in mind.

Revised Schedule: Campout 4/7/18, 8am - 4/8/18, 9:30am

posted Apr 6, 2018, 11:18 AM by BSA Troop41sg   [ updated Apr 7, 2018, 5:27 AM ]


Due to the extreme weather forecasted with wind chill of single digits in DuPage County, the leaders have decided to cancel the Friday 4-6-18 overnight.  Please meet Saturday 4-7-18 at the Sugar Grove Community Building at 8 a.m. We will go to the Forest Preserve Saturday morning; have meals; have activities; and return appropriately 9:30 a.m. on Sunday. We will also continue to monitor the weather conditions and will let you know if the Saturday overnight will be changed also.

Troop 41 apologizes for the late change and ask that you contact Scoutmaster Fox if this interferes with your schedule and may prevent a Scout from going on the campout Saturday. He will be doing his best to make sure that all Scouts that wanted to go on the campout will be able to.


Boys going to Isle Royal and Philmont will be doing a hike with our backpack to help everyone prepare for the trip. The hike will be 5-7 miles long. Please bring a backpack to hold all of you gear plus half of you tent. Boys not going to Isle Royale and Philmont will also be going on the hike. We will use this as an opportunity to get some of the requirements for rank advancement done for them.  Please bring a small backpack to carry a waterbottle, raingear and lunch since we will be eating lunch on the trail. Lastly, right now the weather looks to be on the cool side. Please pack appropriate cold weather gear, i.e. extra sleeping bag, warm clothes, and a stocking cap and gloves to wear at night.


Bring a completed BSA Activity Consent Form.
