the strength of others.”

Troop 51 History

Scouting in Little Chute goes back to 1922 where St Johns Church started Troop 1 & 2. In 1939, Troop 51 was organized through the Lions and Troop 52 was organized through the American Legion. In 1942, Troop 51 changed charters to Men's Catholic Order of Foresters Court and in 1948 changed charter again to the American Legion. Then in 1967, Troop 151 was organized through the American Legion and in 1991 the number was changed back to 51, where is remains today.

Troop 51 Ideology

At Troop 51, we take great pride in allowing the boys to plan and run this Troop. Merit Badges are not everything, and we are not an Eagle factory... we believe the true leadership experiences will provide value to every boy... and those with the desire Eagle are expected to earn it!

Troop 51 Future

We have a great deal of knowledge and experience in running a Boy Led unit. As our Scouts begin to age out, it's time to recruit and invite the next generation of Little Chute's young men to experience the fun you'll only find in Scouting.


One Hundred Scouts

Of any one hundred boys who become Scouts, it must be confessed that thirty will drop out in their first year. Perhaps this may be regarded as a failure, but later in life, all of these will remember that they had been in Scouting and will speak well of the program.

Each of the one hundred will learn something from Scouting, and all will develop hobbies that will add interest throughout the rest of their lives. Approximately one-half will serve in the military, and in varying degrees, profit from their Scout training. At least one will use it to save another person’s life, and many may credit it for saving their own.

Four of the one hundred will reach Eagle rank, and at least one will later say that he valued his Eagle above his college degree. Many will find their future vocation through merit badge work and Scouting contacts. Seventeen of the one hundred boys will become adult leaders and will give leadership to thousands of additional boys.

One in four boys in America will become Scouts, but it is interesting to know that of the leaders of this nation in business, religion and politics, three out of four were Scouts.
