Troop 299 is a Boy Scout troop based out of St. Patricks Church in Tacoma, Washington. We go on outings once a month that range anywhere from fishing, to river rafting, to summer camp to name a few. The scouting experience is meant to provide a fun way to learn about life as a citizen in your community as well as helpful camping skills. The life skills learned in scouting are applicable to all areas of life and give useful information for camping, as well as your acedemic life. To learn more about scouting you can visit the Boy Scouts of America website at http://www.scouting.org/ or the Pacific Harbors Council Website.
