Christ United Methodist Church of Elmhurst


Scouts BSA

Christ United Methodist Church is proud to be a long-time chartering organization for a number of Scouts BSA units that serve the youth in the Elmhurst and surrounding areas:

Troop 117B / Troop 117G / Crew 711: 

Troop 117B is a 20+ year old troop for boys that are ages 11-17.  They provide a Gold Unit award program for scouts to progress to Eagle and enjoy monthly camping experiences for life and leadership opportunities. 

Troop 117G is an all-girl unit that was official established in February 2019 when Scouts BSA started to allow girls to have the same life, leadership and Eagle trail opportunities as boys.  Troop 117G has achieved Gold Unit award status – BSA’s highest unit recognition. 

Crew 711 is a coed unit of older youth that are ages 14-21, and provides opportunities for adventure, leadership, personal growth, and service.

All three of these units have their meetings at Christ UMC. Further information about Troop 117B, Troop 117G, and Crew 711 may be found on their website:
