Cub Scouts (Pack 56)
Cub Scouting is offered to boys ages 7 (or completed kindergarten) through 11 years of age. They meet from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. every Thursday night when public school is in session. We have a growing Pack with approximately 25 active scout and 8 active leaders.
Boy Scouts (Troop 56)
Boy Scouts begins where Cub Scouting ends and goes through 17 years of age. The Troop meets every Tuesday night when public school is in session from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and plans one outdoor activity (CAMPING) once a month, plus six days at Summer Camp in June. We have an exceptional adult volunteer staff for Troop 56 with over 8 active adult leaders for approximately 23 active Scouts. The Troop is also enjoying a steady growth rate of about six Scouts per year.
All Scouting leadership is trained in the Safe Sanctuaries® Policy of the United Methodist Church.

Aaron, my name is Mike Brown and I’m a past cub master and current Assistant I. Right now the Cub program is doing things online, until about May I’m guessing. When they start their regular meetings it will be on Thursday nights every week. just show up and we’ll work out the details. if you want to get a head start you can register online through the scout office.
P.S. Boy Scouts of America changed their name to Scouts BSA, so I’d start with searching those terms.
Recently my two nephews moved in to live with me. As a child I remember the stability and integrity that I learned from being apart of cubs scouts as a child. Boy Scouts for me and my brother came before sports. Learning and participating in the scouts helped us both, my older brother and myself become in touch with nature through fishing and camping. Im not sure about the requirements to participate in the scouts but I would really appreciate having the opportunity to sign them up and get them both involved. If you could please give me direction on how or what I should do to get them involved ASAP I would be greatly appreciated.
