  1. Scouting provides structured settings where young people can learn new skills and develop habits of continual learning. Scouting offers a program of discovering, sharing, and applying knowledge & skills.
    Lifelong Learning
  2. To get the most from life, one must be both mentally and physically fit. A commitment to physical wellness is reflected in Scouting's outdoor programs, as well as first aid, lifesaving, and safety programs. Our programs emphasize the value of healthy living habits.
    Healthy Living
  3. Few will argue with the importance of teaching values and responsibility to our children - values such as fairness, courage, honor, and respect for others. The BSA program is infused with character-building activities allowing youth to apply abstract principles to daily living.
    Building Character
  4. Scouting encourages young people to recognize the needs of others and take action accordingly. Scouting works through neighborhoods, volunteer organizations, and faith-based organizations to help young people appreciate and respond to the needs of others.
    Serving Others
  5. Children benefit from the moral compass provided by religious tradition. Each of the major faiths breeds hope, optimism, compassion, and a belief in a better tomorrow. Scouting encourages each young person to begin a spiritual journey through the practice of his faith.
    Faith Traditions
  6. Young people need mentors. Positive relationships with adults provide youth with good role models and have a powerful impact on their lives. Scouting provides constructive, one-on-one interaction with adults beyond their own families.
Mission Statement
Scout Oath

It is the mission of Troop 25, Three Rivers District of the Northern New Jersey Council, BSA, sponsored by Saint Vincent De Paul Roman Catholic Church,  to provide a quality program for all eligible youth in its diverse service community so that in the future its members will be prepared to make ethical decisions throughout their lifetimes based upon the values contained in the Scout Oath and Law.

In 1935, Father Henry Mackin started Boy Scouts for Bayonne Roman Catholic Parishes at St. Vincent DePaul Church.  Mackin Society members continue Father Mackin’s legacy by paying dues annually so today’s Boy Scouts have opportunity to participate in High Adventure.  For more information how you can support a Scout call 201-437-9502.
On my honor I will do my best
to do my duty to God and my country

to keep myself physically strong, 
mentally awake, and morally straight.    
Scout Law
    A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly,
courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
