Scouting at St. John's


Boy Scouts

Troop 30 was re-founded in 1990 and is proudly chartered by St. John's. From the Joining Rank to Eagle Scout, Troop 30 Scouts are encouraged to give the extra effort to not only complete the requirements for each of their awards, but to really understand them. Since 1990, Troop 30 has produced 36 Eagle Scouts (the highest possible Boy Scout rank), with at least one every year since 1994.

Troop 30 has a lot of fun, while maintaining a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment. “Two-deep” adult leadership at all times ensures that a Scout always has assistance close at hand, but the safety of the group is never compromised. Scouts learn through a variety of activities, but what draws them in is not the learning, but the fun! We laugh, struggle, become exhausted and exhilarated, and
learn together. 

Girl Scouts

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.

Girl Scouts is the world's preeminent organization dedicated solely to girls - all girls -  where, in an accepting and nurturing environment, girls build character and skills for success in the real world. In partnership with committed adults, girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives - like strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth.

Girl Scouts in the District 7 school district are part of the Southern Illinois Council. Troops in District 7 schools are organized by schools and grade level. St. John’s has always opened the doors to troops needing a place to meet or to hold events. Presently, there are 3 troops that meet regularly at St. John’s.

If you are interested in having your daughter involved in Girl Scouts or volunteering you can contact the Girls Scouts of Southern Illinois.
