There are three Marine Corps League detachments, which support the North East Illinois Council, BSA. Lake County Detachment 801 serves most of the county. If your troop meets in the SW corner of Lake County (south and west of routes 60 and 83) please contact the Tri-County Leathernecks Detachment 1395 - Bruce Johnson at (847) 812-9163. If your troop meets in suburban Cook County, please contact the Northwest Suburban Detachment 80 – Robert Stack at (847) 567-4318. Contact Tony Arnone (847) 736-4570 for the McHenry County Detachment 1009.
We are starting to schedule our presentations at Eagle Scout Courts of Honor as Illinois begins to come out of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our detachment supports the Youth Protection Policy of the Boy Scouts of America. As such, either parents or troop leaders should call or correspondence with us, not the Eagle Scout.
The calendar shown below reflects the dates and times when the Lake County Detachment 801 is available. Ideally, we would like to see our MCL presenter travel from a 12:30 pm event to a 3:00 pm making both presentations.
We want to talk with you first on the phone.
Please identify an open date and time then call Mel Ellingsen, 847-274-8144 to discuss availability. Only then should you complete the Request Form following all the instructions.
Advance the calendar with "More Events" below.
