Welcome to
Boy Scout Troop 49.
Camping, Education, Activities and Fun all make up our scouting year. It allows our scout families to spend quality, valuable time with their sons and each other and fosters an active and welcoming environment for our scouts to learn and grow.

Troop 49 is very active in the Ishkote District, Rainbow Council #702, based in Morris, IL with scouts from the area, including New Lenox, Frankfort, Manhattan, Lockport and even Peotone.  We are one of the most active in the area with activities and campouts planned at least once a month.  Feel free to look at our calendar here on the troop site to see what we are doing and where we are going. 
We are very active in the community participating in the Loyalty Day Parade, the annual Scout Food Drive and other various charitable projects that come along from time to time. 
The Troop is led by the scouts themselves, and the parents in the troop are very active in helping them make the most of the scouting experience.
Troop fund raisers include the annual BSA Popcorn Sale and Pancake Breakfast at the VFW. The scouts receive a good portion of the funds they raise deposited into their personal scout accounts that they can use to pay for scouting activities or personal equipment.  The rest of the funds are used to purchase troop equipment for the boys to use at campouts and activities.
The Troop meets on the 2nd, 3rd4th and (5th) Mondays each month .  
The 1st Monday each month is for meetings of the scouts who are elected or appointed as patrol leaders (i.e. Patrol Leaders Council or “PLC”).  Parent and Committee Meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of the month from 6:30 -7:30.  The committee meetings are open to any parents that wish to attend.
All Troop and PLC meetings are held at the troops charter organization V.F.W. Post 9545, 323 Old Hickory Road, New Lenox, IL 60451.  PLC meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. and last about 60 minutes.  Troop meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. and last about 90 minutes.  We look forward to seeing you at the next Troop meeting.
