The Boy Scouts of America was established in 1910, and Hinsdale's Troop 8 was granted its charter in 1912 meaning  Troop 8 has been active for more than 100 years!  Troop 8 was chartered as a BSA-Scouts Girl Troop June 20, 2023

The troop goes camping about one weekend a month to learn new skills, discover new places or return to old favorites, and have a lot of fun!

Troop 8 is scout led, using the patrol method, with encouragement and support from adult leaders.

Nearly 75% of all Troop 8 Scouts go on to earn the rank of Eagle Scout, compared to the national average of 5%.

Many of Troop 8’s Eagle Scout Service Projects have served the Village of Hinsdale, local schools, Hinsdale Humane Society and the Hanson Center in Burr Ridge.  Projects have included building a garage, repaving a horse path, building a "time-out” house, making bat houses, purchasing replacement American flags used in downtown Hinsdale, and washing a thousand pairs of collected shoes to donate to "Save Our Soles."

Troop 8 is a member of Boy Scouts of America, Pathway to Adventure Council and Tall Grass District.

Troop 8 scouts attend(ed) Hinsdale Central High School, Westmont High School, Clarendon Hills Middle School, Hinsdale Middle School, St Isaac Jogues, and Avery Coonley.
