Interested in Scouting?

Scouting reinforces the skills and values we want our sons to learn while they're having fun. Troop 226 has been serving the Walnut Creek, Alamo, Danville and Pleasant Hill communities for over 60 years. All of our scouts are encouraged to take National Youth Leadership Training. The troop has consistently earned the Quality Unit Award each year for leadership, outdoor programs and scout accomplishments. Come to any meeting at St. Luke's for more information.

Troop Handbook for Scouts and Parents

The 2016 handbook is now available for downloading. Download it by clicking here or going to the forms page and scrolling down to the Troop files.

Medical Forms

BSA has once again revised their annual health and medical forms (AHMR). There are now several forms. The first form has parts A & B which can be filled out and used for all activities that are under 72 hours. The second form repeats parts A & B and adds part C which is the doctor completed physical and is to be used for all activities over 72 hours. It's now time to update your medical forms. Our recommendation is to complete the second form which will be good for all of our activities including summer camps.

For BSA insurance purposes the BSA form MUST be used.

It sought to measure the difference Scouting makes in young people’s lives as those positive changes were happening. Read it by clicking here!
