Scouting

All Saints Catholic School has a wonderful scouting program thanks to the tremendous support we receive from the school, the parish, and from our troop parents.  Each year is filled with new experiences, leadership potential, fun, service opportunities, and adventure for everyone!

Cub Scouts / Boy Scouts

Sponsored by All Saints Parish, Cub Scout Pack 1188 is open to boys in kindergarten through fifth grades. (Boys do not have to be students at All Saints Catholic School to be a member of Pack 1188.) Scout activities typically take place during the school year between August and May.

Meetings
Pack 1188 meets the third Tuesday of the month between August and May from 7:00-8:00 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall at All Saints. Smaller groups of scouts, called dens, meet at least once per month during the school year and are scheduled to accommodate the participants schedules. There are also special events throughout the year and an option for summer camp.

Background
As a worldwide brotherhood, Scouting is unique. It is based on the principles of loving and serving God, of human dignity and the rights of individuals, and of recognizing the obligation of members to develop and use their potential. It is a movement dedicated to bringing out the best in people. Cub Scouting doesn’t emphasize winning as an end result, but rather the far more important task to “Do Your Best!” (The Cub Scout motto.)

Scouting helps nurture courage and kindness and allows boys to play, laugh, develop their imaginations, and express their feelings; in short, to grow. We want boys to become faithful and confident individuals who are aware of their own potential.

Pack 1188 is a faith-based pack and we also seek to help each boy develop his relationship with God. We are also a family-friendly pack that supports and encourages sibling and parent participation to the fullest extent possible.

Girl Scouts

All Saints is organized through The Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital. All Saints Catholic School has a wonderful scouting program thanks to the tremendous support we receive from the school, the parish, and from our troop parents. This year will be filled with new experiences, leadership potential, fun, service opportunities, camping, and adventure for everyone!

Troops are available for all grades and have parent volunteers as troop leaders. Girl Scouts is an approved organization of the Catholic Council of American Bishops and the Diocese of Arlington. Our troops also participate in the Catholic Council on Scouting (CCOS) which offers various religious recognition programs. Currently, there are openings at all program levels. Leaders are needed for troops at all levels. Training and supplies are provided at no cost! Volunteering as a Girl Scout leader earns “shares” in the Family Stewardship Program by volunteering through the program.

The registration fee is $25.00 per girl or adult for the 2018-19 scouting year. Financial assistance is available and confidential. All checks for registration must be made payable to “GSCNC.” Do not contact individual leaders for new placement, as they are not able to
