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.
