- Meetings are Sunday afternoons from 2:45 – 4:15 pm in the Parish Hall Cafeteria on the North end.

- Membership is made up of girls and boys in the greater Broken Arrow community and is a mixture of various faiths, schools and Cub Scout Packs.
Who we are!
- Scouts BSA Troops are composed entirely of all male or all female youth and are not coed at the Troop level. Male and female youth are in entirely separate Troops.
- Leaders (i.e. parents, etc.), 18 years old and up, may be either male or female.
- ALL leaders must be trained in and adhere to strict Youth Protection standards as set forth in both Troops BSA and Catholic VIRTUS training.
- We have a male Troop but are eagerly awaiting the formation of a NEW Scouts BSA female Troop so please let us know if you would like to help start one up and give our young ladies the same opportunities our young men have had for over 100 years in Scouting history!

What is Scouting BSA
- Scouts BSA was incorporated to provide a program for community organizations that offers effective character, citizenship, and personal fitness training for youth.
- Endeavors to develop American citizens who are physically, mentally, and emotionally fit; have a high degree of self-reliance as evidenced in such qualities as initiative, courage, and resourcefulness; have personal values based on religious concepts; have the desire and skills to help others; understand the principles of the American social, economic, and governmental systems; are knowledgeable about and take pride in their American heritage and understand our nation’s role in the world; have a keen respect for the basic rights of all people; and are prepared to participate in and give leadership to American society.
- Focuses on developing our girls and boys to be healthy upstanding citizens who will be the outstanding leaders of tomorrow and who possess upstanding morale character and values.
