About Troop 227

Boy Scouts of America Troop 227 in Bartlett, IL is chartered with Living Lord Lutheran Church on Route 59 just South of Stearns.

We are a fun and energetic bunch that uses the Scout Oath and Law to build our adventures.  Each Scouts’ journey is unique.  Some race toward Eagle, while others linger and enjoy the adventure.  Whatever your Scout’s path, we are here to support him in his journey.

The troop is part of the Great Bear District in the Three Fires Council part of the overall Boy Scouts of America organization.

Scouting is for boys aged 11 through 17.

Boy Scouts is an outdoor program designed to develop character, citizenship, and fitness for boys ages 11 through 17. Through the advancement program and peer group leadership, Scouting helps a boy develop into a well-rounded young man. The Eagle Scout Award, the highest rank in Scouting, is recognized around the world as a mark of excellence.
