Meetings: The boys are assigned to a Den of 6 to 8 boys by rank (grade level) and meet for an hour weekly or bi-weekly in the Fr. Gribbin Youth Center. The Dens participate in a monthly Pack meeting, 1-2 hours, typically in the Parish Center. Some Pack meetings are off-site activities such as bowling, fishing, hiking, summer day camp, museums, or parks. Meeting dates for dens are up to the individual den leaders and the availability of the Youth Center but are typically week nights starting at 6 or 7pm. Pack meetings are on Saturdays or Sundays and are subject to the availability of the Parish Center but are typically at 1pm on Sundays.
The Boy Scouts have been a part of the St. Joseph community for over 50 years. Boy Scouts is a program for boys ages 11 through 17 designed to achieve the aims of scouting through a vigorous outdoor program and peer group leadership with the counsel of an adult scoutmaster. Specifically, the BSA endeavors to develop American citizens who are physically, mentally, and emotionally fit; have a high degree of self-reliance as evidenced in such qualities as initiative, courage, and resourcefulness; have personal values based on religious concepts; have the desire and skills to help others; understand the principles of the American social, economic, and governmental systems; are knowledgeable about and take pride in their American heritage and understand our nation's role in the world; have a keen respect for the basic rights of all people; and are prepared to participate in and give leadership to American society.
Led by current scoutmaster, Mr. Walt Clary, Boy Scout Troop 746 mets weekly on Friday nights from 7:30-9pm in the Fr. Gribbin Youth Center. A more specific calendar can be found on the Troops's webpage.
The Troop's local camping, triennial high adventure and Western USA summer camps are heavily dependent upon the success of the Troop's annual citrus sales. Please consider supporting the Troop through your generosity.

Girl Scouts of the USA is one of the world's preeminent organizations 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 adult volunteers, girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives. Qualities like leadership, strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth.
Founded in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low, Girl Scouts' membership has grown from 18 members in Savannah, Georgia, to 3.7 million members throughout the United States, including U.S. territories, and in more than 90 countries through USA Girl Scouts Overseas.
Girl Scouting has been a part of parish life at St. Joseph Fullerton since 1958. This long history began 50 years ago with Girl Scout Troop #982, a troop still established at our parish.
