Boy Scouts

St. Francis is proud to sponsor Cub Scout Pack 1703

Cub Scouting means "doing." Everything in Cub Scouting is designed to have the boys doing things. Activities are used to achieve the aims of Scouting—citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness. Many of the activities happen right in the den and pack. The most important are the den meetings and the pack meetings.
 
Apart from the fun and excitement of Cub Scout activities, the Cub Scout promise, the Law of the Pack, and the Cub Scout sign, handshake, motto, and salute all teach good citizenship and contribute to a boy's sense of belonging.

Scouting Today

Since 1910, Scouting has helped mold the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes, and through nearly a century of experience, understands that helping youth puts us on a path towards a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
 
Scouting, with programs from Cub Scouting through Venturing for young men and women, helps meet these six essential needs of the young people growing up in our society: Mentoring, Lifelong Learning, Faith Traditions, Serving Others, Healthy Living, Building Character.

Membership

Cub Scouting members join a Cub Scout pack and are assigned to a den, usually a neighborhood / school group of six to eight boys. Tiger Cubs (first-graders), Wolf Cubs (second-graders), Bear Cubs (third-graders), and Webelos Scouts (fourth- and fifth-graders) meet at a convenient time during the month.
 
Once a month, all of the dens and family members gather for a pack meeting under the direction of a Cubmaster and pack committee. The committee includes parents of boys in the pack and members of the chartered organization.

Girl Scouts

St. Francis is proud to sponsor Girl Scout Troops K-8th grade

Girl Scouts are 2.8 million strong—2 million girls and 800,000 adults who believe girls can change the world. It began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scouts’ founder Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low, who believed in the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, we've made her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions, and talents.

Girl Scout Mission 

to build girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing.

Girl Scouts at St. Francis

We organize the girls by grade level into troops and they meet about once/month. St. Francis currently has troops in grades K-5 representing over 100 Girl Scouts. St. Francis troops are part of our Tall Pines Hill Community, which has events, workshops and campouts that St. Francis troops are encouraged to participate in.
