The Krokusy cub group was established in 2015

The Krokusy Club Scout Troop is led by Jola Opach, a scoutmaster at the Polish school of St. John Paul II on Staten Island.

The group includes cubs aged 6 to 12 years.

During the cub collections, the cubs learn about Polish traditions, customs, sing Polish songs. The cub scouts are very happy group who enjoy dancing, playing games and playing sports. During our meetings, cubs scouts gained stars (rankings) and various skills from religious, polish culture and physical education.

Scouting is a great adventure, a world of fantasy, singing and camaraderie.

Cub Scout meetings are held from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm on Saturdays at the parish of St. Stanisław Kostka on Staten Island.

Every year, the cubs take part in the transfer of the Bethlehem Light of Peace to our parishioners, parents, teachers and Polish organizations on Staten Island.

We march in the Polish Pulaski Parade in Manhattan.

If you want your child to want to come to cub collections in a cub uniform, sing, win stars and cub skills please contact:
