Due to a conflict with the Lutheran Church Council we have moved our meetings to the third Thursday of each month (September through May) in the back of Holy Cross Lutheran Church at 6:00.

Crossover- May 20th, 2021
Come support our Webelos 2 group as they cross from being cub scouts to boy scouts and join Troop 228. We will meet at the large pavilion in the city park at 7:00.

The scouting year has come to an end but that doesn't mean there's nothing to do. Quite the opposite actually. We weren't able to do a whole lot last year due to Covid so we are making up for it now. With service projects, ceremonies, campouts, and more. Check out the Events page to see everything that's going on this summer.
One of the largest achievements we made over the last year was forming our first ever pack committee. We meet at 5:00 in the St. Joseph Family Center Meeting Room on the 4th Sunday of each odd month (January, March, May, July, September, November). Anyone interested in being on this committee is welcome join. Just contact Jamie Wenske at 361-293-0276 for more info. Come help plan the future of scouting for your scout!
Here are a few helpful items for new parents:
All adults in scouting must take the BSA Youth Protection Training. You don't have to even be registered. Simply click on the link and create an account. Once you have completed the training, please give a copy of the certificate to the cubmaster for their records. For a user guide on getting to the training, click here.
Scoutbook is our pack management system. It is owned by the BSA and gives parents many tools for seeing what your child has done or needs to do. You can also receive communications and see our calendar there. You should receive an invite shortly after joining (we need you email to invite you) or if you already a BSA member you can simply login using your my.scouting.org info.
In this, you will see everything you need to get started with Scoutbook.
Uniforms are a big part of the scouting program. You can tell a lot about someone with their uniform. Getting started can be kind of confusing though if you are new to the program. We use 2 types of uniforms - Class A and B. Class A uniforms are used for formal events/meetings (like pack meetings). Class B's are tee shirts that are used for everything else. You can order your Class A's from Melvin's in Victoria or use the link above to get them from our council scout shop. Class B's will be ordered as a group at the beginning of the scouting year (sometimes in September).
