Scouting at Desert Grace Community Church

Our goal is to help make Scouting accessible for families by aligning the schedules
of our Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts so that they are not pulled in different directions
by competing interests.  

We're not talking about mixing the boys and girls together as much as a way of planning.
That way a dad who loves to teach kids how to fish might be able to teach the boys
at one time, and work with the girls at another - all in the same weekend outing.  

For families with multiple kids, this would be a tremendous support!

Here are the troops we currently host:
