More about Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts 

Boy scouts is a game with a purpose for boys ages 10-17. Troop 144 uses the outdoors as our game room to provide boys opportunity to develop into young adults. This is done by teaching real life skills to provide shelter, prepare food, to lead others, to provide service, and build character. We use the Boy Scouts of America program to provide guidelines for the youth activities as well as training for the adults to provide a high quality and safe program. We meet weekly to plan and prepare for our monthly outing. Summers typically offers bigger adventures with week long summer camp and activities like rafting orbackpacking. For information about troop 144 boy scouts at SJB contact Tony Keagbine committee chair of troop 144, at 503.652.1223. For younger boys grade 1-5 the Cub Scout program is a great prelude to boy scouts.

Scouting's purpose is to prepare young people for a lifetime of leadership.
Our nation will never outgrow the need for thoughtful, responsible leadership. The values and lessons of Scouting will never go out of style.

The Scouting experience includes learning valuable skills and achieving meaningful goals. The Boy Scouts of America promotes action-taking initiative to do things that better individuals, strengthen relationships, and support communities.

Through its methods and program, Scouting helps shape and build in youth the many qualities that guide good decision making in life. Scouting's lessons last a lifetime.

The commitment by adults helps build a straight road for our youth to follow into the future. Scouting helps youth of America find-in themselves and in the world around them- more than they thought possible.

Learning to appreciate our world and our place in it remains essential to the Scouting experience. Youth today face many distractions. Scouting promotes active involvement in the enduring nature of the Scouting experience.
