Saint Bede Catholic Church sponsors both a Cub Scout Pack and a Boy Scout Troop. Scout values, principles, and morals are taught and reinforced. The experience, growth, and education opportunities for boys in these programs is tremendous, in addition to learning about service and the outdoors. They also partake in many fun and exciting activities.

Saint Bede Catholic Church is the chartering organization for Troop 1932 of Boy Scouts of America!  We have an energetic group of 25 Scouts and 12 adult Scouters that meet 2 to 3 times a month on Monday evenings at the church.  Senior Scouts lead the meetings where the Troop works on Scouting skills and a wide range of Merit Badge activities, as well as planning for a monthly outing.  Many outings are outdoor adventures ranging from weekend camping to multi-day Appalachian Trail hikes, James River canoe trips, and even a Catholic Retreat-o-Ree.  Scouting helps youth achieve the aims of strengthening character, physical and mental fitness, and good citizenship. 

If your son is interested in making friends and memories in the outdoors, while learning to live by the Scout Oath and Law, please consider visiting our Troop for a meeting to learn more about this exciting ministry.  Boy Scouting is a year round program for boys ages 11 through 17.
