An Introduction to Troop 219

Not only do boys like outdoor activities, boys NEED outdoor activities!

We do our best to give our Scouts their dose of the outdoors while instilling values and responsibility.  We refer to it as "Fun with Purpose".  The environment of this Troop is on the lighter side; with a solid focus on teaching boys to be good people (with a lot of really important skills).  Our Scouts are involved in many other activities and sports.  We've found that the reason that they make time for Scouting isn't because college admission directors give bonus points to Eagle Scouts - which many do!  
It's because Scouting teaches them to lead the team, not just play for it.

Saint Katharine of Siena Parish has been the home of Boy Scout Troop 219 since 1937 - over 80 years!  Boys from St. Katharine of Siena School as well as many other area grade and high schools have carried on the Scouting tradition ever since then.

At Troop 219 we aim to uphold the Scout Promise and Law, but we still have an educational and thrilling time.  We meet weekly on Thursday nights at St. Katharine of Siena School in Wayne.  During these weekly meetings we work on merit badges, discuss upcoming events, plan meals and help younger scouts with advancement.  We learn essential skills that will be a benefit throughout the boy's lives.  From our community service projects to practicing the EDGE Method, the Scouts are exposed to valuable life skills that build character.

Every year we have exciting trips and adventures.  There are canoe trips, rock climbing, skiing, summer camp, campouts, cold weather camping.  We have certain special outings that happen every few years.  Every few years the troop takes high adventure trips to Scout Reservations like Philmont, Sea Base, or Summit Bechtel Reserve.

Troop 219 is a wonderful troop and we welcome all new members. For more information, contact our Scoutmaster.  If you are ready to join, please fill out this online BSA Youth Application.
