About Us

Who We Are:

Troop 60 has been an active and fun infleunce in Livertyville, Illinios for over 70 years. We are a traditional troop with young men of ages 12-18. It is a boy led troop with weekly meetings and monthly camp outs. Activities are planned and led by the scouts [The adult leaders are there as guard rails. Consistent with the values of scouting, we believe this allows the boys to grow into stronger leaders during these important years in their lives]. Scouting in Troop 60 can be only be described as a great way to enjoy outdoors with friends and a gate way to the numerous oppurtinuies being a scout can offer.
