About Troop 37

As one of the oldest troops in the Rockford area, Troop 37 is proud of 90+ years or service to the community and leadership development of boys.

For the Boys

  • This Troop is all about the boys. As a small to medium sized troop, every boy has a place and there are many opportunities for boys to be actively involved and hold leadership roles.
  • Boys in the troop have lots of opportunities for outdoor adventure and camping.
  • Boys who want to advance in rank are well supported by the Scoutmaster, Assistant Scoutmasters and the troop committee.
  • Troop 37 has a significant number of scouts who attain the rank of Eagle.

Adult Support

  • Troop 37 has a strong and active adult committee. The Scoutmaster, Assistant Scoutmasters and the boys have the support and resources needed for a very active program.
  • A strong committee provides ways for parents to be involved in their boy’s troop and allows for people to move in and out of volunteer positions

Meetings: Monday Nights 7:00-8:30pm at Ken-Rock Community Center, Rockford.


Interested boys and their parents are welcome to visit any troop meeting. Please contact us at least one week in advance.
