In Scouting you'll have fun, adventure, and activities with your troop. Being a Scout means you are a member of a worldwide youth movement that stands for certain values and beliefs. Scouting is more than something to do. It's all about the boy you are and the person you will become.
Scouts learn many diverse skills to prepare them for independence. Scouts learn outdoor and leadership skills, they participate in service projects, conservation projects, and earn ranks and awards along the way. Scouting uses the outdoors as a medium to both learn and execute these skills while working on both individual and group projects. The goal of the troop is to be run by the boys with guidance provided by adult leaders.
The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America is to provide an educational program for boys to build character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness. The program is offered to parishioners and other boys in the community.
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 Law.
Boys may join Boy Scouts once they are 11 years of age and may continue until their 18
birthday. The Boy Scouts of St. Jerome Parish, Troop 456, meet on Monday night in Brooks Hall from 7:00 - 8:30 pm. The troop goes on monthly outings with more activities available as the boys plan.
