Scouting has a long tradition at Grace-St. Luke's. Boy Scout Troop 34, in fact, is the oldest continually existing Boy Scout Troop in the city! Take a look at Scouting at Grace-St. Luke's. It's a great way to build friendships, discipline, and self-esteem.
The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness. Boy Scouting is for boys 11 to 17 years of age. Boys also may become Boy Scouts if they have earned the Cub Scouting Arrow of Light Award and are at least 10 years old or have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10 years old. Contact the church office 272-7425 or email Troop Leader Jim Martin(Troop34memphis [at] gmail [dot] com). The Troop's website is http://troop34.org/.
Cub Scouting is a program of the Boy Scouts of America designed for boys in the first through fifth grades, or 7 to 10 years of age. While Boy Scouting is a vigorous outdoor program, Cub Scouting is a family-oriented program designed specifically to address the needs of younger boys.
