Who We Are
Troop 222 was chartered in May 1988 and has been continuously active since its inception. Saint Elizabeth Seton Church's Youth Ministry charters Troop 222; however, the scouting program is non-denominational. There are currently 70+ scouts in the Troop, half of which are in high school and half in junior high. Our troop has helped over 160 scouts achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. Most scouts, independent of the level that they achieve, learn skills, values, and self-confidence. These qualities will assist the scout in every walk of life.
The aim of scouting is to build character, foster citizenship and to develop fitness. The values that we encourage are based on those found in the Scout Oath and Law. We are a very goals-oriented troop and one statistic says it all: over 12% of the young men that have joined Troop 222 have reached the elite rank of Eagle Scout. This average is well over twice the national average of 5%. The scouts run Troop 222's program with guidance from the adult leaders. We believe scouting works best in an outdoor environment and Troop 222 supports a strong outdoor camping program.
