Kasperson Center for Scouting Blog

Check back regularly for updates and highlights of our transformation of and move to 850 Forest Edge Drive in Vernon Hills! Our new program-centered facility will be the Northeast Illinois Council’s new home.

What is the Kasperson Center for Scouting at Morrison Park?

Named in recognition of the vision that Richard & Lucinda Kasperson and the Morrison Family had for Scouting, the Kasperson Center for Scouting at Morrison Park will serve as the cornerstone for the delivery of Scouting in Northeast Illinois.  Just as the Scouting program has developed over the years, the need to support it in a robust way has also changed.  This new and larger space will allow us to add more programs and provide better customer service to our members.

The new facility will house a Scout Shop three times larger than our current store and five times as much conference and meeting space.  We will now be able to accommodate regular program offerings as well as more hands-on training opportunities to improve the delivery of the Scouting program.

Situated on a 2-acre, wooded lot, the Kasperson Center for Scouting at Morrison Park will have a camp-like feel with all the amenities and services that Vernon Hills has to offer, allowing the Northeast Illinois Council to serve Scouting with more impact and support than we ever have.
