Boy Scout Troop 313 Finds New “Campground” at New Clearwater Community Volunteers Center

Clearwater, Florida, UNITED STATES

CLEARWATER, Fla., April 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Boy Scout Troop 313, based out of Clearwater, Florida, has found a new home for its weekly meetings - the brand new Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) Center, supported by the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization.

Now in its 22nd year, this Troop has made well over 30 Eagle Scouts. With increased demand by youth for Scouting, the Troop needed a meeting place that would provide them with the necessary facilities. The CCV Center was the logical choice. With the multi-purpose room and plenty of sitting space, they can plan for future activities. Osceola Courtyard is located right across the street, which the Troop took advantage of by practicing setting up tents for an upcoming camping trip.

Troop 313 is open to boys of any faith, as is any troop. Boys in the Scouting program are encouraged to be faithful and loyal, as laid out in the Scout Oath and Law.

The Church of Scientology cut the ribbon for the CCV Center on March 24th, opening the center to Tampa Bay non-profit organizations and charitable groups.

“The Center provides spaces for group meetings, seminars and events,” said Clemence Chevrot, Director of the Clearwater Community Volunteer Center. “Since the opening, community groups have used the Center for their meetings; one of those groups being Clearwater’s Boy Scout Troop 313 and we are very honored to have them.”
