Boy Scouting is for boys who are 11, or are at least 10 years old and have completed the fifth grade or have earned the Cub Scout Arrow of Light Award, through 17 years old. Boys experience a vigorous outdoor program and peer group leadership with the counsel of an adult Scoutmaster to achieve the BSA’s objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness. Camping, fun with friends — and more. It’s the adventure of a lifetime.

Give your son a valuable gift by encouraging him to join Boy Scouting today. The time you invest in him today will make a difference in the person he becomes tomorrow.

We meet every Thursday at 6:30pm at
Our Lady of Fatima
801 North duPont Boulevard, Wilmington Manor,
New Castle, DE 19720.
For information contact Scoutmaster Todd Stephan (; 302-547-9856).

Troop 274 has a simple philosophy: To allow the scouts to run their own troop. This will encourage leadership and confidence while scouts are mentored by adults. When a boy reaches the rank of Eagle, he will have learned many new skills, including confidence, mentoring skills and working with his peers and adults.

Choosing a troop is a very important step in your scouting career. Take the time to find the right troop for your goals and your personality.
