Welcome to Troop 273 Vernon Hills, IL

Welcome to Troop 273's Website!

Please see our "Upcoming Events" list on the right side of this page. This shows what our Troop is doing in the near term. Please contact us for more information on any event via the "Contact Us" menu selection to the left.

Our Troop meets Thursday evenings from 7:00 - 8:30pm at Christ Lutheran Church which is located at 595 Deerpath Dr. in Vernon Hills, IL. We start our meetings in August and finish the scout year in June. Our Patrol Leaders Council is the only part of the Troop that meets on the first Thursday of the month. It is at the "PLC" meeting that we also hold our Scoutmaster Conferences and Board of Reviews.
Our Troop has the philosophy that is aligned with traditional scouting ideals. That is to say that the scouting program is to allow scouts to serve others by helping to instill values in young people and, in other ways, to prepare them to make ethical choices during their lifetime in achieving their full potential. We try to follow the three aims of scouting; character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Through weekly meetings and monthly activities/camp-outs, the boys have a chance to grow into adulthood while learning life skills. The Scout Oath, Law, and Motto are what guides our scouts actions. If you are interested in a boy-led, traditional Scouting program, we welcome you to visit us. Stop by one of our meetings, or contact our Scoutmaster at scoutmaster@troop273vh.org.
