WELCOME!  Set yourself down at our virtual campfire!

Troop 505, "The Prairie Troop", was chartered in 1964 and has been a continuously active troop in Naperville, Illinois, a southwestern suburb of Chicago, since its inception. We are  chartered by Knox Presbyterian Church, located at the corner of Gartner Road and Catalpa Lane in Naperville, Illinois.

Many boys have graduated from the troop with the skills, values and self-confidence necessary to guide them through their entire adult life.  Troop 505 has awarded over 170 Scouts their Eagle rank, the highest rank a Boy Scout can attain.

The values we and the Boy Scouts of America strive to instill are based on those found in the Scout Oath and Law.

For further information about joining Troop 505, please click on Information Request or phone our Scoutmaster, Jezza Sutton  at sm"@"  (630) 416-8427 or Committee Chairman, Kevin Williams at (630) 842-2257.

Kick off BBQ
Sunday Aug 23

It is nearly the end of summer and in keeping with the tradition over the last few years the troop is hosting a BBQ. Families are invited to this chance to spend the last weekend before starting up scouts and school.

We will be at Blackwell Forest Preserve, at the South Shelter. As you enter the part from the south, keep to the right near Silver Lake and it is the first shelter you come to. 

We will be there from 1pm until 6pm with the aim to eat mid-afternoon. The cost is $5 per person to cover cost of burgers and renting the shelter. Please bring a salad or dessert to share. Bring also games and anything else you might want to play with in the afternoon. An extra grill or two would be handy as well.

Please RSVP to so that we can have an accurate count of how many to buy for.
