Boy Scouting, one of the traditional membership divisions of the BSA, is available to boys who have earned the Arrow of Light Award and are at least 10 years old or have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10, or who are 11, but not yet 18 years old. The program achieves the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness.

Troop 229 meets Sunday afternoon from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm during the school year.   Meetings are held in the St. Theresa Catholic Church Family Life Center. 

Mission Statement
The mission of Troop 229 is to teach young men the skills they need to be successful in life.  This is accomplished through teaching Scouting values, survival skills, leadership and organizational skills.  We are committed to adventure, learning and “boy fun” through challenging outdoor and indoor experiences.  Scouting should be enjoyable and it should challenge each boy to be the best he can be.  We offer all of our Scouts the opportunity to advance through the Scout ranks by providing an active program of instruction and activities.  We strive to instill in our Scouts lifetime values and develop in them ethical character as expressed in the Scout Oath and Law.  As a troop, we serve our community through a quality, values-based program of service.

Scout Oath (or Promise)
On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.

Scout Law
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly,
courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty,
brave, clean, and reverent.

Service
Service is a big part of Scouting and Troop 229.  In our short history, our troop has contributed many hours to service projects.   We have been very involved with St. Theresa's and some of the activities that we have participated in are:  We helped at the Friday Fish Fry, stuffed and hid Easter eggs for the Parish children’s Easter egg hunt, built the St. Theresa’s Easter Vigil Fire, help with the church’s ministry’s weekend and helped at the Parish Picnic.  We participated in the Capitol Area Council Scouting for Food Drive.
