For over 50 years, Scouting has been an integral part of youth ministry at Annunciation Parish, developing the future leadership of our church and community. Our Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Venturing Crew and American Heritage Girls serve the youth of our parish throughout their formative years. For more information, please refer to the contact information for each of our Scout groups are listed below. Boy Scout Troop 280 invites young men ages 11 – 17 to join our Troop. Troop 280 is a Scout-Led Troop, where our more experienced Scouts lead younger Scouts, with the adult leadership on hand to mentor them. We meet Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. in the gym. If you are interested please email Troop Master Mario Vargas. Venturing Crew 280 emphasizes building strong leaders in young men and women between the ages of 13 and 20 years of age. This is done through reaching out to the community, deepening religious and ethical commitments, and organizing activities, like rock-climbing, backpacking, camping, plays, and much more. Want to know more? Contact Crew Advisor Jason Follingstad.
Cub Scout Pack 280 provides a means for boys in 1st through 5th grade and their families to have fun and adventure while building character and instilling Christian values of citizenship, compassion, cooperation, courage, faith, respect, and responsibility. For more information, contact Cub Master Keith Tate. American Heritage Girls Troop 0325 is a new but fast and growing addition to the Annunciation Scouting family. It is made up of groups of girls age 5 through 18, who meet together to enjoy learning new skills, giving in service, growing in faith, practicing leadership, experiencing teamwork, building friendships and strengthening character. To know more about this great opportunity for girls, contact Troop Coordinator Jenn Randall.
