Boy Scouts of America has been a part of the United States culture since Congress chartered it in 1910. Dan Beard Council was one of the first Councils in the country. It was named for one of the three program founders who grew up in Covington, Kentucky. Troop 27 was chartered in 1950 and has a long tradition of serving Mount Healthy and Church of the Assumption. We accept boys who are 11 to 17 years old. We don't insist that they be Roman Catholic, just that they believe in God and attend regular religious services as required by the Scout program.
We meet every week and do activities such as camping, hiking, or a service project at least once a month. Each summer we go on a week-long camping trip.
Our purpose is to instill young men with the qualities of leadership, self-reliance, and citizenship while still having fun!
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
