The fish must have heard us coming...but it was still a great day to be out on the lake.

Scout Sunday

Sacred Hearts Parish has been wonderful to the Troop and we thank them for their support.

Camp Carter Hike

It was a hot hike, but the view at the top was worth it. See the movie.

Helping Hurricane Harvey Victims

The Troop held a car wash as a fundraiser for a fellow troop in Port Arthur, TX, affected by the hurricane.

The boys went to see the eclipse and got their own moment in the sun (so to speak).

The boys are at Wah-tut-ca and having a great time. Check out the pictures.

Second Class Rank Requirement 9a

Posted on 20 March 2016

The Boy Scouts of America has the following 2nd class requirement:

9a. Participate in a school, community, or troop program on the dangers of using drugs, alcohol, and tobacco and other practices that could be harmful to your health. Discuss your participation in the program with your family, and explain the dangers of substance addictions.

To meet this awareness requirement for Troop 24, each scout will watch with their parent the following list of specific videos and public service announcements on the Foundation for a Drug-Free World website:

In the “Real People – Real Stories” section:

  • The Truth About Drugs

  • The Truth About Marijuana

  • The Truth About Alcohol

  • The Final Word

In the “They Said/They LiedTV Public Service Announcements section:

  • Popular

  • Just Once

  • They Said

  • The Truth About Drugs

Parents are recommended to watch these ahead of time and decide if they are comfortable exposing and discussing these materials. It is a curriculum rated for ages 11 and up. Scouts should not watch these videos alone, and parents should be there to discuss and answer questions.


For 100 years, The Boy Scouts of America has helped boys develop into honorable men, by building character, fostering citizenship, and promoting fitness all while having fun. Boy Scouting is available to boys that have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10, or who are 11, but not yet 18 years old.


We normally meet Sundays at St. Patrick's Church in Groveland, although video conferences have been the norm in 2020. There are always plenty of adult leaders present for you to ask questions, gather information and learn about us.


Troop 24 has been part of the Sacred Hearts Parish Community for over 75 years. We are smaller than the average Boy Scout troop which gives us the flexibility to help the scouts develop their own unique plan to improve their skills, complete achievements and advance at a pace that is comfortable for them.
