The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
St. Peter’s Troop 118
St. Peter’s Parish has a long tradition with Boy Scouts, having hosted Troop 118 continuously for over 75 years. Some of our Eagle Scouts have grandfathers who were Eagle Scouts in our troop! Friends of Troop 118 hold the charter for our scouts, and if you ask any of the scoutmasters or young men who have been part of the program, they will tell you their time spent camping, hiking, fishing, spelunking, and rock climbing have given them some of their best memories of their childhood.
Troop 118 at Saint Peter’s is very active, planning camping trips monthly with a 10-day summer camp experience yearly at the H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation and a week-long High Adventure for scouts 14 and older every summer at places like Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico, The Rocky Mountain High Adventure Base in Colorado, and Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Minnesota.

How much time is involved?
There is a one-hour weekly meeting at Saint Peter’s that is attended by the boys and adults. Throughout the year, there are several camping trips which help advance the scouts in their rankings. Troop 118 gives many hours of service each year and our scouts help one another with the building of their Eagle Scout projects on weekends and in the summer.
Where and when does Troop 118 meet?
Typically in the St. Peter’s church basement, on Monday nights at 7 p.m.
How does my son get involved?
Anyone interested in more information about the troop or wanting to join should contact David Safley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I volunteer?
Troop 118 is a volunteer organization run by a group of men and women, many of whom are parents of Boy Scouts currently in Troop 118. Many of our leaders have a lifelong commitment to scouting, staying involved long after theirs sons have gone to college and grown up. If you are interested in volunteering, contact our Scoutmaster, David Safley at email@example.com.
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
The Boy Scouts of America will prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
