Boy Scout Troop 831 is located in Kohler, WI and is chartered by the Kohler Police Athletic League (KPAL). We are one of the oldest Boy Scout Troops in the State of Wisconsin, having first been chartered in 1919.  Through the continued generosity of the Kohler Co., we are able to meet at Scout Acres located in the forests of Kohler near Blackwolf Run and River Wildlife. Our objective is to develop character, citizenship, and personal fitness in our scouts through a program of education, service, and outdoor adventure.

This troop serves boys ages 11 – 18 and will be receiving the Autism and Scouting Leadership Training Kit.

How to Get my Unit, District, Council or Program Listed

    Please submit the following information:

    • Name of the Unit
    • Mailing address
    • Contact Name(s), position, email address and/or phone number
    • Any Social Media Links or Website links for your program

    In order to be listed, we also need to have an e-mail or letter by one of the unit leaders committing to the following for your unit:

    • To practice inclusion and accept scouts into your unit of all abilities.
    • To provide a sensory break area or have a plan in place to provide breaks for scouts that may need one.
    • To show acceptance and work with each scout’s family to make sure they are also part of each scout’s journey. This also helps the unit leadership understand any strengths, learning styles, challenges or triggers that each youth may have.
    • To provide youth and adult training on disability awareness at least once every twelve months.
    • To be willing to learn about autism, ASD and any other co-condition the scout is living with.

    The Autism and Scouting Program is happy to provide you with leadership and volunteer training resources upon request. We highly recommend having each scout in your unit have a sensory questionnaire or profile on file.
