The Jacksonville Jewish Center has had very strong ties to the rich tradition of Scouting for a very long time. We’ve held the charter for Boy Scouts Troop #14 since 1919. Our Girl Scouts Troop #1372 became active prior to 1938. Our Boy Scouts troop is the only Jewish troop in Northeast Florida and one of the oldest troops, as well.
Both of our Scouting programs strive to create a sense of self-empowerment in our participants. Camping and survival skills are not the only things they learn! They are also eligible for Jewish-themed badges and hold the majority of their regularly scheduled meetings at the Jacksonville Jewish Center.
We currently have the following Scouting programs available: Cub Scout Pack #14 (1st Grade to 5th Grade Boys), Boy Scout Troop #14 (6th Grade to High School Boys), Daisy Girl Scouts Troop #1372 (Kindergarten and 1st Grade Girls), Brownie Girl Scouts Troop #1372 (2nd Grade and 3rd Grade Girls), Junior Girl Scouts Troop #1372 (4th Grade and 5th Grade Girls), and Cadette Girl Scouts Troop #1372 (6th Grade to 8th Grade Girls).
