Boy & Girl Scouts

Saint Joseph Parish hosts Cub Scout Pack 23 of the Boy Scouts of America. As a member of the Boston Minuteman Council, Pack 23 and the Cub Scout program strive to provide each scout with Character Development, Spiritual Growth, Good Citizenship, Sportsmanship and Fitness, Family Understanding, Respectful Relationships, Personal Achievement, Friendly Service, Fun and Adventure, and Preparation for Boy Scouts.

The Cub Scout program is a year-round family program designed for boys in St. Joseph Parish who are in Grade 1-5. The annual fee for the year is $75. Boys are placed into age/grade appropriate Dens.

Pack 23 holds Pack meetings once a month from September through May on Sunday evenings at 6:00 p.m. in the elementary school cafeteria. Pack Meetings are a chance for boys to participate in scouting activities, community service projects, games, as well as develop leadership and team working skills, and recognize each other’s achievements. Additionally, each Den will meet at least once a month for Den level activities and work toward scouting achievements. Most months there is a special event that each Scout, a parent and sometimes family members can take part in.

Pack 23 relies heavily on parent volunteers for the success of the program and enjoyment and development of our scouts, come join us!

An American Institution

Girl Scouts of the USA was chartered by the US Congress on March 16, 1950.

Still Growing Strong

Today, there are 2.7 million Girl Scouts—1.9 million girl members and 800,000 adult members working primarily as volunteers.

Empowering Girls

As Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Girls grow courageous and strong through a wide variety of enriching experiences, such as field trips, skill-building sports clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships.

Girl Scouts helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.
