Scouting programs are available for students for all students in Saint Agnes Parish.
Boy Scout Troop 111 was originally chartered in 1939, shortly after Saint Agnes Parish was incorporated, and is believed to be the oldest Catholic-sponsored Troop in the Arlington Diocese. The Troop currently (mid-2010’s) averages between 80 and 105 Scouts each year, making it the largest Catholic-sponsored Troop in Arlington County as well as one of the larger Troops inside the Capital Beltway. The Troop annually offers many campouts, outdoor activities, and service projects. Meetings are held in the Parish Center on Monday nights 7:00 to 8:30, from early September til late June, and sporadically over the summer. Extensive additional information, including contact information, is available on the Troop website, at: http://troop111.org/
Saint Agnes is the patron saint of Girl Scouts. She embodied many of the qualities that Girl Scouts try to cultivate: courage, honesty,respect for oneself and for others, service to God and to neighbor.
Currently, there are 9 Girl Scout troops at St. Agnes, ranging from Kindergarten through 8th grade. Girl Scouts are involved in the St. Agnes community through service projects such as the Lenten food drive (to help re-stock food pantries in Madison County).
Girl Scouts opens a world of opportunities for girls in grades K-12 to make friends, learn new skills, discover the world, explore science, volunteer, go camping and more. As the largest girl-serving organization, our focus is on leadership development for girls.
At Girl Scouts, we are a family connected by our mission to build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. Together as a family, we can help girls get started on a path to a future filled with success.
