Scouts

Boy Scouts learn to strengthen values, promote citizenship and enhance mental and physical fitness.  Boy Scouts earn badges, plan, participate and attend camp outings, jamborees and sponsor service projects.

Tiger Cubs – A school-year program for first-grade (or 6 and 7-year-old) boys and their adult partners that stresses simplicity, shared leadership, learning about the community, and family understanding. Each boy/adult team meets for family activities, then once or twice a month all the teams meet for Tiger Cub group activities.

Cub Scouting – A family- and home-centered program for boys in the second through fifth grade (or 7, 8, 9, and 10 years old). Cub Scouting’s emphasis is on quality program at the local level, where the most boys and families are involved. Fourth- and fifth-grade (or 10-year-old) boys are called Webelos (WE’ll BE LOyal Scouts) and participate in more advanced activities that begin to prepare them to become Boy Scouts.

Boy Scouts – The St. Ann Boy Scouts (ages 11 – 18 years old) of Troop 265 meet every Monday evening at 7:00 at the Family Life Center. We plan and go on at least one outdoor activity a month, and schedule several special trips throughout the year to include: Philmont Scout Ranch, Minnesota Canoe Base, Summer Camp, Camporee/Jamboree, white water rafting, hiking and more.

Girl Scouts is the world’s largest organization devoted specifically to girls. Through the leaders, the parents and the girls working together, Girl Scouts learn to succeed and make a difference in this world by providing resources and opportunities to achieve the highest ideals of character, conduct and service.

The Girl Scout program is girl-driven, reflecting the ever-changing needs and interests of participating girls. It provides girls with a wide variety of opportunities. The program encourages increased skill building and responsibility, and also promotes the development of strong leadership and decision-making skills. All program activities are age-appropriate and based around the Girl Scout Mission: Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and charter, who make the world a better place, as well as on the Girl Scout Promise and Law.

There are Six grade levels in Girl Scouting: Daisy Girl Scouts, grades K-1; Brownie Girl Scouts, grades 2-3; Junior Girl Scouts, grades 4-5; Cadette Girl Scouts, grades 6-8; Senior Girl Scouts, grades 9-10, and Ambassadors Girl Scouts, grades 11-12.
