    Boy Scout Troop 269:  Troop 269 was formed in 1964 with a belief that scouting is fun with a purpose.  The goal of Troop 269 is to take boys and direct them into being well-rounded, responsible young men by teaching responsibility, organization, leadership, and skills that will prepare them for their adult life.  Most of the scouts attend St. Christopher School, but attendance is open to all schools. Being a very active troop, we camp at least eight times a year, including a week-long summer camp.  We support St. Christopher Parish and the community by performing many hours of service where our scouts learn the value of helping others at all times. For more information, please contact Gerald Roser, 885-4574 or

    St. Christopher Girl Scouts:  Girl Scouting builds "girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place."  The goal is to provide fun, safe activities while promoting a high standard of values for girls, kindergarten through high school seniors.  For more information, please contact Allison Signorelli,
