    How Troop 507 came to be

    Kenosha and Scouting

    The first Boy Scout Troop in Kenosha was the Otter Patrol of the First Congregational Church which was organized on January 5, 1911. This Troop was later assigned the title Troop 7 when in 1917, the Kenosha Council was formed and later changed to 507 when the Kenosha Council merged with the Racine Council.

     

    By December of 1917, there were 9 Boy Scout Troops in Kenosha:

    Troop 1 chartered to Frank School

    Troop 2 chartered to St. James Church

    Troop 3 chartered to Frank School

    Troop 4 chartered to Bain School

    Camp Ohdakota

    Camp Oh-da-ko-ta was a gift of Charles Nash. In 1929, Nash purchased 73 acres on Dyer lake and placed it in trust for the Kenosha Council. Oh-da-ko-ta is a Sioux indian name meaning "Friendly", which had been the camp site named at previous rented camps. The dining hall, pump house and 9 sleeping cabins were built the first year.
