Learn about Cub Scouts
In the Boy Scout program, boys learn through the experiences of camping, hiking, building projects, and community service. Scouting fosters a sense of value and belonging, accountability, and teamwork.
The program builds boys mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually. The skills they learn in Scouting help them overcome obstacles and challenges with courage and character throughout their lives.
Give your son a valuable gift by encouraging him to join Boy Scouting today. The time you invest in him today will make a difference in the person he becomes tomorrow.

2012 Scout Awards
Following this year’s Holy Saturday Liturgy, His Eminence Metropolitan Isaiah of Denver honored several boys of Denver’s Hellenic Orthodox Boy Scout Troop by presenting them with ten medals of religious merit!
The boys of Troop 102 had been working closely with father Paul Fedec since last fall studying and learning more of their Orthodox faith and how it relates to life as a scout and in everyday living. The Eastern Orthodox Committee on Scouting (EOCS) was formed over fifty years ago when several Orthodox Priests and Bishops saw the correlation between scouting and the Church. One of the first tasks they undertook was the establishment of the Religious Awards Program.
There are three youth and one adult award that scouts and their adult leaders can earn. Both Girls Scouts and Boy Scouts participate in this program and can also be members of the EOCS.
The Awards are divided into four categories:
- St. George Award – Grades 1 – 3
- Chi-Rho Award – Grades 4 – 5
- Alpha Omega – Grades 6 – 12
- Prophet Elias Award – Adult Recognition Award
The Boys of Troop 102 earned a total of ten medals during this latest event, which included nine Alpha Omega and one Chi Rho!
In previous years all four of these medals have been presented to Orthodox boys and girls from Denver area scout Troops and Packs including several Prophet Elias Awards.
