We provide a strong year-round Scouting program utilizing the ideals and methods of the Boy Scouts of America. As we “Do Our Duty” to God, our Country, and to our Community, we cheerfully give back what we have received in scouting… one scout at a time.

Camping with Pack 373

Feb. 25 2017

We had a blast camping out with the Webelos from Pack 373 in our backcountry. The cub scouts learnt knots from the scouts in Troop 79 and participated in the burning of palm fronds to be used for Ash Wednesday. It was a cold night but everyone had fun!
