The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) provides the nation’s foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training. General Parish contact for our Scouting programs at IHM is fellow parishioner Chuck Hinkle, the Charter Organization Representative (COR). If you have a general Scouting question or need general information, Chuck may be contacted at 636-544-6639.
BSA programs are divided by age and activity. Two of those programs are in place at IHM, Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA.
Cub Scouts - Pack 856:
Cub Scouting is for boys and girls in kindergarten through 5th grade , which teaches duty to God, country and service to others. Cub Scouts are divided into dens according to grades.
