Starting in 2018, families can choose to sign up their sons and daughters for Cub Scouts, ages 5-10. Using the same curriculum as the Boy Scouts program, Scouts BSA is scheduled to launch in February 2019, enabling all eligible youth ages 11-17, to earn the Eagle Scout rank. You can learn more about this change on our Family Scouting page.
Cub Scout Pack 334 and Boy Scout Troop 334 are long-standing, highly recognized Boy Scouts of America units in the Roxborough neighborhood of Philadelphia, PA.
Founded in 1943, we have served this community for over 75 years. It is not uncommon to find second and third generation members of Troop 334, nor is it uncommon to have the Troop number recognized by Scouting groups across the country. We have a rich heritage, incredible stability, and a proven track record of excellence. Our legacy is borne on the chests of the many, many Eagle Scouts we have helped prepare over the years, and is echoed in their continued contributions to our community and nation.
Cub Scout Pack 334 and Boy Scout Troop 334 are chartered by Leverington Presbyterian Church, located on Ridge Avenue, across from Gorgas Park between Hermitage and Gates Streets, in the heart of the Roxborough neighborhood of Philadelphia, PA. Every Scouting unit requires adult leaders, youth members, and a chartering organization. All Boy Scouts of American units are owned and operated by local chartered organizations, which are generally faith-based organizations, civic organizations, or educational organizations. Each unit is established with a local branch of a chartering organization, not at the national level.
Leverington Presbyterian was established in 1869 and has long been a bedrock and foundational neighborhood church, committed to its faith as well as to Roxborough and the City of Philadelphia. The church became our home in 2003, and we are proud to be chartered by such a historic and significant organization. Prior to 2003, we were chartered by other organizations in the neighborhood, which you can read about here.
Our adult leaders are a vibrant and highly active group of community members, many of whom were previously scouts or parents of scouts from Troop 334. You can learn more about our leadership here.
Our Boy Scout Troop 334 meets every Monday at 7:30 pm and our Cub Scout Pack 334 meets every Friday at 7:00 pm.
