Scouting

Boy Scouts:  The primary goal of the Boy Scout troop at St. Francis is to get boys (grades 6 and up), outdoors at least once a month for activities such as camping, canoeing and hiking, and have them be able to take care of themselves indoors and out. A variety of projects and activities are planned monthly.  BSA Troop 457

Cub Scouts: St. Francis has Cub Scout dens for boys in grades 1 – 5. The Cub Scout program emphasizes God, family and country, and varied activities related to them as well as nature and the environment are planned on a regular basis. Adult volunteers are actively being sought. Den/Pack meetings are determined by leaders.

Girl Scouts: Girl Scouting is an informal and experiential educational program promoting girls personal growth and leadership development within a national and global sisterhood. Grounded in the values of the Girl Scout Promise and Law, it offers girls a safe, supportive environment. Girls partner with caring adults to create a wide range of fun and challenging activities that empower girls to grow, lead and engage in service. Girl Scouts is the preeminent organization dedicated solely to girls, all girls. Girl Scouting cultivates values, social conscience and self-esteem in young girls, while teaching them critical life skills to later succeed as adults. In the special, girls-only, environment, girls discover the fun, friendship and power of girls together. Girls ages K-12 are invited to participate.
