The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
St. Patrick Troop
St. Patrick Parish has a long tradition with Boy Scouts. Some of our Eagle Scouts have fathers who were Eagle Scouts! If you ask any of the scoutmasters or young men who have been part of the program, they will tell you their time spent camping, hiking, fishing, spelunking, and rock climbing have given them some of their best memories of their childhood.
The Boy Scouts Troop is very active, planning camping trips monthly with a 10-day summer camp experience yearly at the H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation.
How much time is involved?
There is a one-hour weekly meeting at St. Patrick that is attended by the boys and adults. Throughout the year, there are several camping trips which help advance the scouts in their rankings. Scouts give many hours of service each year and our scouts help one another with the building of their Eagle Scout projects on weekends and in the summer.
Where and when do Boy Scouts meet?
Typically in the St. Patrick cafeteria, on Monday nights at 7 p.m.
How does my son get involved?
Anyone interested in more information about the troop or wanting to join should contact the school for more information.
How do I volunteer?
Boy Scouts is a volunteer organization run by a group of men and women, many of whom are parents of Boy Scouts. Many of our leaders have a lifelong commitment to scouting, staying involved long after theirs sons have gone to college and grown up. If you are interested in volunteering, contact our Scoutmaster.
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
The Boy Scouts of America will prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
