Boy Scouts Grades 6-HIGH SCHOOL

Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 690. We have been part of the St. Celestine Community for 80 years. We meet the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month at 6:30 pm in the school lunchroom. We welcome scouts from ages 6th grade through high school up to 18 years of age.

Please see the Boy Scout Monthly Calendar on the right sidebar of this page.

As a Troop, made of Patrols, we work on merit badges, go on outings, camping, hiking, attend scout mass and complete many service hours for St. Celestine, Elmwood Park and the greater community. We have had many scouts attain Eagle Rank over the years.

For further information about joining the troop, please contact Raul Basulto, St. Celestine Boy Scout – Scoutmaster at raulbasulto@gmail.com.
