Boy Scouts & Cub Scouts

Cub Scouting is fun! If you are in, 1st through 5th, it can be a blast. Do you like to learn by doing? This is just the place. You can learn to tie knots, set up a tent, shoot a bow and arrow (archery). Have you ever cooked a meal on a campfire? Sent a secret code to a buddy? build a bird house? Play Ultimate? Hike? Earn rewards for doing these things in Cub Scouts.  Check the Cub Scout Pack 101 web site on the link below.

The Cub Scout pack 101 is a mimistry of the First United Methodist Church. This group makes sure your pack has good adult leaders, a place to meet, and exciting things to do. The group gets help from the Boy Scouts of America, which is part of Scouting around the world.

Boy Scout Troop 101 is for boys ages 11 through 17, grades 5 through Senior in High School.  The troop meets every Tuesday evening from 6:30 to 8pm year round.  The mission of boy scouts is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. 

Scout Oath

On my honor, I will do my best, to do my duty to God and my country, to obey the scout law, to help people at all times, to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

Scout Law

A scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.  

Boy Scout Troop 101 is heavily involved in community and FUMC service and support, while having fun camping, high adventure outings and international camporees.  For more information, please contact Karen Chuvalas by clicking here.

May 23, 2017 -- Troop Update

Boy Scout Troop 101 stayed busy this winter.  In February they built a dog sled with optional wheels in case we didn't have snow to race at the Klondike Derby Camporee (no dogs were used for this race :-).

As an Eagle Project, the troop cleaned and built shelving in the attic upstairs for FUMC.  The Boy Scout Troop helped with parking for the Marysville Bluegrass Concert series this Winter.  In May as a service project they cleaned up the Amrine Cemetery and have a campout planned in Michigan.  On May 30th, the scouts will have a Court of Honor in the Sanctuary from 6:30pm to 8pm.  They are off to summer camp at Seven Ranges in Kensington, OH from June 18-24.
