Boy Scouting is for boys who are 11, or are at least 10 years old and have completed the fifth grade or have earned the Cub Scout Arrow of Light Award, through 17 years old. Boys experience a vigorous outdoor program and peer group leadership with the counsel of an adult Scoutmaster to achieve the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, personal fitness, camping, fun with friends -- and more. It’s the adventure of a lifetime.

Give your son a valuable gift by encouraging him to join Boy Scouting today. The time you invest in him today will make a difference in the person he becomes tomorrow.

We meet most weeks on Thursdays at the St. Joseph's Church Rectory basement - at 7pm
1795 Columbia Ave, Warrington, PA 18976

Our Philosophy
There are many differences between Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts.  The biggest difference is that in Boy Scouts the boys do most of the planning and execution.  The adult leaders provide guidance, but the boys do the work.   You will not see our troops tents lined up like army tents in a perfectly straight line on a campout. That's just not something boys do without adults telling them.

We believe in providing the opportunities for our scouts, and then we encourage them to take advantage but in the end, it is their troop.  It's not the adult's troop.

The Troop is always looking for adult volunteers.  There are many ways to help out and all parents are welcome. The troop has no rules limiting parent involvement from the moment your scout joins the troop.
