Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts

Cub Scouting is part of the Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), available to boys from 1st through 5th grade, and their families. Its membership is the largest of the three BSA Scouting Divisions (Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, and Venturing). Cub Scouting is part of the worldwide Scouting movement and aims to promote character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Pack 555 is comprised of Dens of similar-aged boys by grade and at least two adult leaders. We also camp in the fall with Troop 555 Boy Scouts of St. Gertrude and again in the summer at Cub World as part of the Fun with Son program.

Membership: Open to any parishioner Scout's Website
