Troop 188 was established in 1964 in Palatine, Illinois. Today, it continues to actively serve the youth of Palatine and the surrounding areas. We are approximately 40 scouts strong and have an active program of meetings, outings, fundraisers service projects and camping. Troop 188 meets every Monday from 7—8:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall of Christ Lutheran Church, our Charter-Organization, located at 41 S. Rohlwing Road, Palatine, IL. Troop 188 has many unique qualities that make us stand out from the rest. Our real strength lies in the number of quality “trained” adult leaders. Troop 188 is a true “Scout Run Troop” which allows its scouts to choose the outings and activities in which they take part. Troop meetings are run by the scouts and they assist in organizing the Courts Of Honor, held throughout the year. Troop 188 is very active, with an average of 10 campouts per year, among the other engaging activities such as community service projects; Scouting For Food, Soup Nights at Christ Lutheran Church, community clean ups and more. Troop 188 has been a successful troop for over 50 years and proud to have produced over 85 Eagle Scouts as part of its outstanding program.
