Boy Scouts

For Boys 11-17 years old. Scouting is the ultimate form of learning by doing. Boy Scouts explore their interests and improve their skills while working toward Scouting’s highest rank: Eagle. By first imaging, planning then doing their own service projects, Boy Scouts learn the value of hard work, and experience the thrill of seeing it pay off. Add in outdoor adventures, hiking and camping, and Scouting gives boys all the experience they need to become men.

Box Tops

Clipping for a cause and for cash! Each box top is worth 10 cents!  Our goal this year is 30,000 box tops.  The class with the most box tops at the end of the year wins a pizza party. A form can be found online along with a list of Box Tops products.

Go to our Box Tops for Education page for more information.

Cub Scouts

For Boys 7-10 years old or Grades 1-5. Kids have fun while learning skills that will help them later on in life. From the thrill of shooting an arrow to learning how to transform a block of wood into a race car, Cub Scouts is one thrill after another. With a program expertly tailored to match each age in a young boy’s life, Cub Scouts learn that even when fund isn’t easy, it’s always an adventure. In Scouting, everything has a purpose. And it shows kids that doing their best is the most fun of all.
