× Due to the spread of COVID-19, and following the guidance of the state of Pennsylvania, the New Birth of Freedom Council, as well as St. Joseph Parish, Troop 195 activities have been modified to address these concerns.
Please see the upcoming events for details.


In Troop 195, boys learn through experiences such as camping, hiking, projects, and community service. Scouting fosters self-esteem, a sense of value and belonging, life skills, and teamwork.

Our program builds mental awareness, physical fitness, social skills, and spirituality. The skills they learn in Scouting can help them overcome obstacles and challenges with courage and character throughout their lives.

We are located in Mechanicsburg, PA, sponsored by the St. Joseph Catholic Church, and are part of the Pioneer District of the New Birth of Freedom Council of the BSA.

We have great programs for boys from 5th grade until 18 years old. Many of our members are parishioners at St. Joseph Church or attend St. Joseph School, but we welcome other boys in the area who are interested in joining Boy Scouting.

Scouting is all about fun, challenges and adventure! Join us! Meet new people, find opportunities for your boy to grow mentally and physically. Help them build leadership and social skills while having fun!
