SUMMIT, NJ - Boy Scout Troop 67 in Summit is inviting prospective new Boy Scouts and their parents to an informational Open House session February 27 at 8 p.m. The event will be held in St. Teresa of Avila Parish's Memorial Hall, located at 306 Broad Street -- across the street from the main Church.

Boys between the ages of 11-17 go on frequent outdoor treks, organize community service projects, and learn important leadership skills. Recent treks have included white water rafting, snow skiing, backpacking, and water skiing.  The Troop has been sponsored by St. Teresa of Avila Parish since 1933, and has helped more than 70 boys earn the rank of Eagle Scout -- Scouting’s highest honor.

Attendees will learn how they can be part of a growing and active Troop. No prior Scouting experience is required.

Boy Scouting is designed to offer a unique program for today’s young men that complements sports and extracurricular activities. Through an emphasis on outdoor skills and boy-led activities, boys learn life skills in a supportive environment, grow in self-confidence, and develop a life-long love of the outdoors. The aim is to build character, train tomorrow’s leaders in the responsibilities of participative citizenship, and develop personal fitness.
