About Boy Scout Troop 19
Boy Scout Troop 19, based in the heart of York at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, is a vibrant and active community for young boys aged 11-17. We are dedicated to instilling the values of leadership, outdoor skills, and citizenship in our scouts. With our experienced adult leadership and a rich history dating back over 50 years, we provide an exciting and safe environment where boys can grow, learn, and develop lifelong friendships.
At Boy Scout Troop 19, our mission is to empower young boys to become responsible and resourceful individuals through engaging activities and character-building experiences. We strive to foster an inclusive and supportive environment where scouts can challenge themselves, gain valuable skills, and develop a deep appreciation for nature and the community.
Our troop offers a wide range of exciting activities that cater to the interests and passions of our scouts. From camping and hiking to fishing and orienteering, there is never a dull moment in Troop 19. We organize regular outdoor adventures, community service projects, leadership training programs, and scouting competitions to ensure our scouts have ample opportunities to grow and thrive.
One of the highlights of being a member of Boy Scout Troop 19 is our camping adventures. We organize regular weekend camping trips, where scouts have the opportunity to bond with their fellow troop members, learn essential survival skills, and appreciate the natural world. Our experienced scout leaders guide the scouts through various outdoor activities, including cooking over a campfire, setting up tents, and mastering outdoor navigation techniques.
Service to the community is a core value of Boy Scout Troop 19. We actively participate in various community service initiatives, including environmental clean-ups, food drives, and assisting local charities. Through these activities, our scouts learn about the importance of giving back and making a positive impact on the world around them.
We believe that every scout has the potential to become a future leader. Troop 19 offers comprehensive leadership training programs where scouts can learn essential leadership skills, effective communication, and teamwork. Through various leadership roles within the troop, scouts gain hands-on experience in decision-making, problem-solving, and mentorship.
Boy Scout Troop 19 actively participates in scouting competitions at both the local and regional levels. These competitions provide scouts with the opportunity to showcase their skills, teamwork, and dedication. From knot-tying challenges to orienteering races, our scouts develop a sense of healthy competition while building self-confidence and camaraderie.
