Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts
Since 1910 the Boy Scouts of America has been providing a proven, character-building program to our nation's youth. It is the mission of the Boy Scouts to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
Troop 219 is part of the Skyway District of West Central Florida Council. The troop has been active for about 50 years. We service the youth of Snell Isle and Shore Acres areas of Pinellas County. Troop 219 is active within the Outina Chapter of the Order of the Arrow, Timuquan Lodge 340. Troop 219 is a Scout Run Troop which follows the Patrol Method and has an active youth enrollment, and a strong committed contingent of parent and adult volunteers.
Boys in first through fifth grades (or ages 7, 8, 9, or 10) may join a Cub Scout pack and be assigned to a den, which is usually made up of boys in a neighborhood who form a natural play group. Tiger Cub dens usually meet twice a month, and Cub Scout and Webelos Scout den meetings are usually held once a week. Cub Scouting emphasizes involvement between boys and their parents, adult leaders, and friends.
Boy Scouting is available to boys who have completed the fifth grade or who are 11 through 17 years old. The program achieves the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness qualities among youth by focusing on a vigorous program of outdoor activities. The Troop meets on Wednesday from 7:00 to 8:30pm in the Parish Center.
Venturing is a program for young men and women ages 14 (who have completed the eighth grade) through 20. The program emphasizes team leadership, life-skills development, outdoor and high-adventure activity, and other areas of interest to the crew members.
