Troop 3 Boy Scouts was officially chartered to St. John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in 2017. Troop 3 currently includes 36 active Boy Scouts and 29 adult leaders. The Troop holds meetings every Monday at 7:00 pm in St. David’s Hall, and holds quarterly meetings called Courts of Honor in the Parish Life Center. Troop 3 is a Boy-led Troop, with camping, hiking, service projects, games, training, and fundraisers taking place throughout the year. We are also pleased to participate in church events like the Garden Tour and other events during the year.
Troop 3’s mission is to instill the values of the Scout Oath and the Scout Law in the boys who choose to become members. We believe that learning life skills and being a part of something bigger than the individual builds self-confidence and a positive mental attitude, enabling boys to grow into young men of strong character and purpose.
All boys are welcome to become members of Troop 3, where they and their families will find a supportive environment enabling them to grow and prosper under a very active scouting program. If you know a boy who may be interested in joining Troop 3 please have their parent or guardian contact Scoutmaster Dan Breedon at 530-519-2619. Troop 3 is open to visitors at all times, this is a good way for potential members to learn more and become familiar with Boy Scouts.
