Boy Scout Troop 976 - The Boy Scout Troop is open to all young men of the parish and school from grade 5 or when they complete Webelos II to age 18.  Troop 976 is committed to the mission of the Boy Scouts, with many exciting camp trips, field trips, and high adventure programs.  It is a boy led troop – that is, leadership is a key tenant of the troop, and the boys are formed into patrols where they elect leaders, plan their meetings, and choose outings under the guidance and supervision of the adult leaders.

Troop 976 has an excellent record in having scouts attain the rank of Eagle, an accomplishment demonstrating the highest level of character and achievement to college recruiters, company executives, and many others that will influence their lives.
The Troop meets every Wednesday night from 7:30-9 pm in the Counsel Room, sponsors one outing per month, and sends scout crews to at least one or more week-long adventure camps per year.  This Troop is formed under The National Capital Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America.  See the Troop’s website for additional information.
