Welcome to our Troop!

Welcome to the official homepage of Oswego Troop 31 of the Three Fires Council, Maramech Hill District!

We are located in Oswego, IL and our chartering sponsor is the Oswego Presbyterian Church. The troop was founded over 80 years ago and has been a real success thanks to our exceptional leadership and parental involvement. We meet on a weekly basis with the exception of holidays. The Monday evening meetings are held at the Oswego Presbyterian Church on the lower level from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm.

With outdoor activities planned monthly, we accomplish the needs of the camping and backpacking enthusiasts. We attend Camp Freeland Leslie in Wisconsin annually, which is our long term council summer camp, and is generally one of the highlights of the year.

2-8-16  - First Assignment - 2 Great Boy Scouts

2 Great Boy Scouts: the brave Neil Armstrong and the great citizen, Gary L. Ackerman.
Neil Armstrong was a famous Boy Scout, achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. He was the first person on the moon! Neil Armstrong was determined to be an astronaut & demonstrated bravery as the first man on the moon. Neil Armstrong died on August 25, 2012 after complications to coronary artery bypass surgery.
Another famous Eagle Scout is Gary L. Ackerman. He was born in Brooklyn, New York on November 19, 1942. Gary Ackerman began his career as a junior high teacher. He was a member of the Democratic Party & later became both a New York Senator and a U.S. Representative. Gary Ackerman was a good role model because he taught junior-high school students, which could be considered challenging, and because he demonstrated citizenship as a U.S. Representative for 15 terms!
Both of these men demonstrated the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. They led their generation & future generations with loyalty, integrity & bravery. Thank you for your service, Mr. Armstrong & Mr. Ackerman!
