Boy Scouts: Service, community engagement, faith, and leadership development are the central goals of Troop 627 at Holy Infant. Scouting provides boys and young men the opportunity to lead their own activities and work their way toward earning Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout. In addition to learning important outdoor and leadership skills, Scouts can choose from over 135 merit badges to enhance their knowledge of sports, crafts, sciences, trades, businesses, and future careers. Scouts will take part in activities ranging from rappelling, fishing, canoeing, hiking, horsemanship, swimming and first aid training. Troop 627 generally meets at Holy Infant on Sunday afternoons during the school year, goes camping once a month, and takes part in a week-long summer camp in mid-June. Boys in 5th Grade through High School are eligible to join Boy Scouts, and no prior scouting experience is required. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts of America, is a youth organization for boys in Grades 1 through 5. Boys in Grade 1 may join Tiger Cubs, an introduction to Scouting. Cub Scouts are divided into dens according to grade. In their den meetings, boys fulfill achievements in order to advance in rank. Monthly pack meetings are held to recognize the Cubs’ achievements. Scouts will learn the Scout Oath and Scout Law, and will participate in events throughout the year including camping, hiking, the Pinewood Derby, and a variety of age-appropriate “adventures”. During 5th grade, a Cub Scout is eligible to become a Boy Scout.

VENTURING CREW 627
Venturing is a co-ed program of the BSA for young men and women of high school and college age. Venturing Crews can decide their purpose and objectives. Our crew primarily seeks high adventure experiences in the outdoors. We also do other fun things, having about one activity a month and a big trip in the summer.
Because we are part of the BSA, we have available to us the excellent facilities of the Greater St. Louis Area Council, and the national High Adventure bases. We also belong to an active Venturing Officers Association which sponsors several large activities each year for Crews, Posts, and Ships in the St. Louis area.
We are open to new members at any time during the year, and those who are considering joining may participate in up to two activities before making a decision. You can join Venturing if you are at least 13 years old and have completed eighth grade or when you turn 14. You can remain a Venturer until you turn 21. We also welcome adults of any age who need more adventure in their life.
You can be a member of a Venturing Crew while you remain active in Scouts BSA or as a Girl Scout, and we also have members who have never been a scout. Former Scout BSA who reached at least First Class rank can continue to advance toward Eagle Scout within the crew until they turn 18. We meet every other Sunday.
