The #46 Bánffy Kata Hungarian Girl Scout Troop and the #7 Erős Gusztáv Boy Scout Troop located in New York City have been providing scout programming for over 60 years.
We welcome all Hungarian children who are over 6 years of age, every other week at the Hungarian House of New York. These scout meetings involve learning practical scouting skills, along with Hungarian folklore, history, traditions, customs, and folksongs passed down from generation to generation. Each program occurs in patrols, where scouts come together with other children their age.
Not only do we meet within the Hungarian House, but we also go on outings, which include camping, skiing, canoeing, bicycling and much more. These events bring scouts together where they become lifelong friends and advance their scouting knowledge. All our programs are conducted in Hungarian therefore scouts practice their language as well.
Every Hungarian-speaking child, no matter the skill level, is welcome to join!
