Boy Scouts - Cub Scouts - Venture Crew

Boy Scout Troop 832 was chartered in 1992 and has had a commitment to the young men in its program and the community since that time.  We strive to be able to provide the young men of Troop 832 with a quality scouting program.
  • We draw students from Blessed Sacrament Huguenot as well as Powhatan Elementary School, Flat Rock Elementary School, Pocahontas Middle School, Powhatan Junior High School, and Powhatan High School.
  • Right now we have 50 active Boy Scouts along with a support group of adult leaders.
  • In addition to the Scoutmaster we have 15 Assistant Scoutmasters and a Troop Committee consisting of 12 more adult leaders.
  • We run a balanced Scouting Program with Hiking and Camping events balancing out over the year.
  • We run a Boy Lead Troop.
  • Several important events each year are our Webelo Crossover Weekend, Summer Camp, and our Christmas Court of Honor.
  • We conduct several Service projects each year to provide opportunities for the boys to serve their community and and others.  We have been involved in the James River Clean Up, Scouting for Food, Powhatan Relay for Life, HEN Pantry Food Drive, as well as a host of other events each year.
  • We also provide fundraiser opportunities for the Scouts throughout the year so that they learn to earn their own way as well as help out with outings and Summer Camp fees.

Cub Scout Pack 1832 was established in 1992 in Powhatan County and continues to keep going strong. Our strength comes from the parental support that we receive. This support is vital to the growth and success of our Cub Scouts. Although our sponsorship/charter is with St. John Neumann Catholic Church, our Pack is known for and open to all boys regardless of religious preference. Our Pack currently consists of five den groups (Grades 1st through 5th) and consistently meets requirements for earning a "Quality Unit" status in our District.

The goal of the Boy Scouts of America, as incorporated on February 8, 1910 and chartered by Congress in 1916, is "to provide for boys and young adults an effective educational program designed to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship and to enhance the development of physical, mental and emotional fitness".

Cub Scouting is a family program; it is the cooperation between boys and parents that make your son and the Pack successful. The end result of this is FUN, FUN, and FUN! This experience is fun for the boys and fun for you and the rest of your family.

Venture Crew 832:  Venture Crew 832 was chartered in 2010 and continues to provide  young men and women (ages 14 – 21) positive experiences to help them mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults. Venturing provides the skills needed for young adults to make ethical choices, experience a fun program full of adventure and challenges, acquire leadership skills, and to take advantage of opportunities to advance their skills and knowledge in the areas of high adventure, sports, arts, hobbies, religious life, and Sea Scouting.  Venturing is a new "old" program of the Boy Scouts of America. Originally part of the Exploring Division, it finally came into its own in 1998. It has become the fastest growing program of the BSA and welcomes young men and women to participate. 

 

We draw students from Blessed Sacrament Huguenot, Powhatan Jr. High School and Powhatan High School.   We meet on the 3rd Thursday of the month at St. John’s.  As a Crew we participate in various outdoor activities and community service projects annually as decided upon and planned by our youth members.
