In addition to our service campout in the spring, there are a number of other service opportunities for the Scouts in Troop 850. Each August, Troop 850 helps with the setup for the St. I Festival on the Thursday evening before the festival. Also, the following Monday morning, the Troop helps with the festival cleanup. With our help at the festival, the troop shows our appreciation for our sponsoring organization – Saint Ignatius Catholic Church.
For a Scout to attain the ranks of Star Scout and Life Scout, he must complete a six hour service project approved by the Scoutmaster. The culmination of a Scout’s service to his community is his Eagle Scout Project. For this a Scout elicits help from other Scouts in the troop to complete a significant, permanent project to be benefit the community.
