The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes -- and, through over a century of experience, knows -- that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society
Troop 81, chartered by St. Pius X Catholic Church, has been meeting there for over 50 years. Since being chartered in 1958, Troop 81 has been on countless outings, helped 1000s of people through service, and has had a total of 104 Eagle Scouts.
Service has always been extremely important to Troop 81, even from the beginning. Through countless Eagle Projects Troop 81 has not only helped the St. Pius X Church and School community, but also the greater Tulsa community and even the world. Over the past few years Eagle Projects have helped St. Pius X Church and School, neighboring parishes, the Tulsa Historical Society, the Lions Club, and even a Catholic mission in Haiti. Not only has Troop 81 done countless hours of service through Eagle Projects, but we have also always done service work at the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, as well as several other local charities.
Camping has also always been something that Troop 81 has focused on. Whether it be the annual "Coon Hunt" or the annual Memorial Day campout to Cedar Lake, Troop 81 has always enjoyed camping. We camp once a month, and we generally go on one big trip a year.
Currently, Troop 81 has over 40 registered scouts and is one of the Indian Nations Council's most distinguished troops.
Interested in joining us?
We meet starting at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays in the St. Pius X School cafeteria. Any boy in grades 5 - 12 can join Boy Scouts. For more information on our troop feel free to email our Scoutmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org
This Boy Scout troop really follows and believes in the Scout Oath and the Scout Law. These leaders try very hard to be a good example of what a scout, boy, person should be. I am proud to be a small part of this troop. And I am so thankful for the wisdom and guidance that they have given my son. He has learned so many leadership skills, learned how to compromise, learned how to make camp, cook, clean up, and give back in service to his community. These leaders have given my son many life skills, that he will take with him the rest of his life. I am proud of the boys in this troop, with their No Bullying stance, and sticking to that. Each boy is celebrated for the things they are able to bring and share with others. Thank you Boy Scout Troop #81 for being in both my son's life and my family's life. You have made us all better people.
