Scouting

Scouting has been part of Westminster’s youth ministry since 1942. In 2016, celebrating their 75th anniversary, Cub Scout Pack membership was up to 100  children and Boy Scout Troop membership was 70 boys. In addition to the normal day camp for the youngest and a week of Summer Camp for older scouts, the Troop spent a week sailing the ocean around Florida’s Sea Base. Five Boy Scouts earned the Eagle Scout rank, bringing the Troop 129 total to over a 100 Eagle Scouts. The Venturing Crew is 17 boys & girls, many of whom tackled a 10-day trek at Philmont Scout Ranch in northern New Mexico.
