SCOUTING

BOY SCOUTS AND CUB SCOUTS

St. Agatha Parish has a strong Scout program. Cub Scout Pack 298 is a year-round family program designed for boys who are 6 to 10 years old. Parents and leaders work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting. Cub Scouts participate in many fun filled activities such as camping, hiking, field trips, Pinewood Derby, picnics, service projects and sporting events. The Cub Scout Pack meets once a month and boys meet twice a month in smaller dens. Boy Scout Troop 298 is a year-round program for boys around ages 11-18. Through the Boy Scout program, young men can achieve the core objectives of strengthening character, personal fitness and good citizenship. The Boy Scout Troop meets weekly, and once a month plans a camping or high adventure activity. New members are always welcome. Call David Schirtzinger (Boy Scouts), 563-4880, or Ron Zesch (Cub Scouts), 481-8492, for more information.

 

GIRL SCOUTS/BROWNIES/DAISIES

Girl Scouts at St. Agatha provides a great opportunity for girls to get involved by making friends and learning how to make a positive impact on their community. They are involved in many programs and activities related to community service, science, art, and outdoor activities. The goals set for the girls are accomplished by participation in service projects, attendance at regularly scheduled troop meetings, and various other adventures like organizing the Father/Daughter Dance. Membership is open to all girls at different age levels: Daisy Scouts (Kindergarten-1), Brownies (grades 2-3), Juniors (grades 4-6), and Cadettes (grades 7-9). All the St. Agatha troops are registered with The Girl Scouts of Ohio's Heartland Council through the Upper Arlington Service Unit. Girl Scouts is committed to helping girls grow strong.
