Boy Scouts - Cub Scouts - Venture Crew

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."

Scout Law: A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.

Scout Oath or Promise: On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

Cub Scout Pack 1832

Established in 1992 in Powhatan County and continues to keep going strong. This experience is fun for the boys and fun for you and the rest of your family.

Although our sponsorship/charter is with SJN, 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 to earn the "Journey to Excellence" award in our District.

Chartered in 2018 to provide Family Scouting to young boys and girls, Kindergarten to 5th Grade (ages 5 to 10), in Powhatan County.

We are a Family Scouting Cub Scout Pack chartered at SJN and our unit accepts boys as well as girls.

The unit serves boys and girls from Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. Each year our Scouts learn to be a stewards of their community and develop a love of the outdoors.

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 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.

As a Crew we participate in various outdoor activities and community service projects annually as decided upon and planned by our youth members.

We draw students from Blessed Sacrament Huguenot, Powhatan Middle School, and Powhatan High School.
