About Us

Troop 35 and Gary United Methodist Church, our sponsoring organization since 1923, would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Scouting. Whether you are just visiting or have already decided to join Troop 35, we hope to make your introduction to the Scouting an enjoyable one. Below is information about Troop 35 that you will find helpful.

Troop 35 has approximately 30 boys from the Wheaton and the surrounding communities ranging in rank from New Scout to Eagle Scout. Since 1928 there have been more than 130 Eagle Scouts from our ranks.

Troop 35 is a youth-led organization but the success of the Troop depends greatly upon the generosity and support of parents like you. Please consider becoming involved – it’s a wonderful way to share in your scout’s growth. All leadership training fees for parents actively supporting the Troop are paid for by the Troop.
