Special Needs Scouting


Autism Spectrum Scouting for boys ages 11-17. 
Troop 1910.  David Lyon, Scoutmaster.  801-440-5070.
Meets: 1st and 3rd Thursdays from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Location:  LDS church, 5422 S Sarah Jane Dr (5240 W) in Kearns. This troop meets in an LDS building but is community-sponsored.  "We meet on Thursdays so we do not affect normal troop meetings. Our goal is to be a resource, to add to a boy's Scouting experience."
Additional Autism Spectrum troops will be starting soon in other areas in the Great Salt Lake Council.  For more information, contact john.garrett@scouting.org
