Join Troop 523

Boy Scouting is for boys who are 11, or are at least 10 years old and have completed the fifth grade or have earned the Cub Scout Arrow of Light Award, through 17 years old. Boys experience a vigorous outdoor program and peer group leadership with the counsel of an adult Scoutmaster to achieve the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness. Camping, fun with friends -- and more. It’s the adventure of a lifetime.

Give your son a valuable gift by encouraging him to join Boy Scouting today. The time you invest in him today will make a difference in the person he becomes tomorrow.

The Troop meets weekly except during the summer months. The weekly meetings run for 90 minutes and they are an opportunity for the boys to learn new skills, make new friends and have fun. We plan monthly camping trips, educational trips and annual High Adventure treks for the older Scouts. There are activities for boys of all ages and abilities.

The best way to learn more about Scouting and our Troop is to come for a visit! We meet every Tuesday at 7:30 PM in the gymnasium at St. John Vianney Church located at 420 Inman Avenue, Colonia, N.J.
