New Scout Open House

posted Feb 8, 2016, 6:06 AM by Summit Scouts
You and your son are cordially invited to attend a New Scout Open House on February
22nd, 8:00 pm at St. Teresaʼs Memorial Hall. This is an opportunity to learn more about
the active and growing Boy Scout program in Summit. New 5th grade Patrols are
forming in March so donʼt miss this chance for your sons to be part of the fun and
adventure that is Scouting today.

Boy Scouting continues to be a unique program that develops tomorrowʼs leaders. The
program is based on life skills education, leadership development, citizenship, and
values training. Through a combination of instruction from older Scouts and frequent
outdoor treks, boys build friendships and learn teamwork, while at the same time
becoming more self-reliant and self-confident.

Troop 67 has been an important part of the Summit community for over 80 years.
Today, the Troop has a boy-led program made up of over 70 young men from ages
11-18. The older Scouts plan and execute a monthly schedule of Monday meetings,
service projects and weekend treks. Past treks have included skiing, rock climbing,
cycling at Gettysburg National Park, whitewater rafting, canoeing, backpacking, caving,
ice climbing and snowshoeing.

Most of Troop 67ʼs Scouts are involved in a variety of sports and other outside activities.
The Troopʼs program has been designed to be flexible and allow Scouts to advance
through the ranks at their own pace. Many Scouts choose to pursue the highest honor,
Eagle Scout, and each year the Troop has had several young men achieve this notable

Please plan to bring your son to this informational program. The Scouts have planned a
series of demonstrations for the boys that will run concurrent with a session just for the
parents. No previous experience in Scouting is necessary. Have a daughter interested
in Scouting? Ask about Scoutingʼs Venturing Program.
