Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts & Venture Crew


The Boy Scouts of America at Our Lady of Angels is the oldest chartered Catholic unit in the United States. Scouting at OLA has been in existence since 1925. There are three categories, Cub Scouts (boys 7 to 10 ½ years old), Boy Scouts (10 ½ to 17 years old) and the Venture Crew. The latter is a newer endeavor and is a co-ed program for boys and girls 14-20 years old. At the present time there is one troop for each category.
