Who We Are
Troop 834 is part of the Frontier District of the Laurel Highlands Council – Boy Scouts of America. We are sponsored by Our Lady of Grace Parish in Scott Township, Pittsburgh, PA. Troop 834 was originally chartered in 1963 with fifty-five scouts on its roster that year. The troop was organized by members of the Our Lady of Grace Men’s Club. Since its inception, 132 young men have attained the rank of Eagle Scout, Boy Scouting’s highest rank. Troop 834 is now in its 56th year of operation and is led by Scoutmaster Matt Kraeuter.
What We Do
Troop 834 meets every Thursday from 7-8:30 pm at Our Lady of Grace School (see map on “Contact Us” page). Any scout is welcome to come and visit. We also go on one weekend campout and at least one day outing every month, year round. Annually we participate in a weeklong summer camp, visiting a new place each year. In 2019 we attended Sinoquipe Scout Reservation in Fulton County, Pennsylvania. Check the calendar to stay up-to-date with all the current meetings and outings.
How to Join
The best way to join is to send us a note on the “Contact Us” page, then show up at one of our weekly meetings. From there, any further actions will be handled by scoutmaster Chip Segeleon. Troop 834 accepts any boys who meet the official BSA membership requirements and want to learn and enjoy their time as a scout. Also, feel free to send us any questions you have with joining. We hope to see you soon!
