Bucktail Council, Boy Scouts of America
Boy Scout Troop 245 is part of the Allegheny Laurels District of Bucktail Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Our troop meets at the Woodland Avenue United Methodist Church in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.
In the Boy Scout program, boys learn through the experiences of camping, hiking, building projects, and community service. Scouting fosters self-esteem, a sense of value and belonging, a sense of accountability, and teamwork. The program builds boys mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually. The skills they learn in Scouting help them overcome obstacles and challenges with courage and character throughout their lives.
